In Portland Oregon's Washington Park you will find a sort of Women's History hidden gem, a bronzed statue of Sacajawea.

This bronze statue was unveiled at the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exhibition, the first of many like it across the United States. It was designed by artist Alice Cooper and required more than 20 tons of Oregon copper, the funds coming from the National American Women's Suffrage Association.
