Edith S. Green, an Oregon politician and educator, was the second woman to be elected to the House of Representatives from Oregon in 1954. She was instrumental in introducing such education bill as the Higher Education Facilities Act of 1963 and the Higher Education Acts of 1965 and 1967. Green is possibly most notable for her work on the legislation that would become Title IX.
