Women at Chemeketa Community College participated in Emily's listening tour. The OWF report says: "The report ends a twenty-year wait for current, clear, and compelling data on Oregon's' two million women and girls."
Ms. Evans' presentation of the report titled Count Her In will be followed by a panel discussion in response to the information in the report and on potential efforts to improve the lives of women and girls in Oregon. The panelists will be Trish Garner, AAUW State Public Policy Chair, and Molly Mayhead, Professor of Communications studies at WOU.
