2017 Women's Year 



“For each generation has but one chance to be judged by future generations,
and this is our time.”

— FROM GOV. BARBARA ROBERTS’ INAUGURAL ADDRESS, JANUARY 1991

It’s 2017. Despite the presidential popular vote numbers this past November,
no woman has yet to break the United States’ biggest glass ceiling. Women as
a whole continue to earn 16 percent less than men, as of 2015—and if you’re a
woman of color, that deficit is even greater.

But peek inside this year’s Source Women’s Issue and you’ll start to see some
more uplifting news. You’ll meet our Woman of the Year Betsy Warriner, whose
commitment to volunteerism in our community puts her high on our list of lady
movers and shakers.

We also sit down with the staff at Bend’s Planned Parenthood clinic—the only
PP east of the Cascades—who tell us about their recent expansion, even amid threats of funding cuts at the federal level.

Meet some of Central Oregon’s emerging and seasoned female activists,
who inspire us for their commitment to feminism, food activism,
social justice, racial equity, the legislative process and more.

Find out, “What is feminism anyway?” With Magdalena Bokowa diving into the other "F" word and why its still polarizing, seen as radical, and that you, yes you, are a feminist.

And we profile both of Oregon’s female governors, who remind
us that future generations will one day judge us, and that this is our time.
To the people of all genders who make our part of Oregon the great place
it is—and to those working to move the needle toward a more equitable society—
this one’s for you.
