KCLS Online Program: Washington Legend Julia Butler Hansen

January 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

For adults.

In her amazing career, Congresswoman Julia Butler Hansen came to be known as “The Duchess of Cathlamet,” “The Sage of Wahkiakum County,” “The Little Old Lady in Logging Boots,” “Mrs. Highways,” or “Madame Queen.” Her name was recognizable enough that her campaign buttons eventually just said “Julia” in script, which is also how she was addressed by her constituents. Historian John Hughes’ biography examines the fascinating woman behind the nicknames.
Hansen fought for transportation, Native American and women’s rights and education. Never the token woman, she retired from Congress in 1974, undefeated in 41 consecutive elections.
