Up the Capitol Steps: A Woman’s March to the Governorship

Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Gerlinger Hall, Gerlinger Lounge
1468 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

Featuring former Oregon Governor Barbara Roberts, Oregon’s first (and only) woman governor, one of only thirty-four women who have served as state chief executives in the history of the United States. In her book and lecture, Governor Roberts offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse of a woman’s life in politics and aims to “demystify” leadership by telling the story of her own unlikely rise to power. 

The lecture will be followed by a book signing opportunity with Governor Roberts.
