The Portland area is known for Nike, Columbia Sportswear, Intel, craft beer, Silicon Forest, Pearl District for shopping and wine tasting in the Willamette Valley.
What you might not know is the co-founders of Astra, twin sisters, Diane McClelland and Suzanne Lackman, graduates of David Douglas High School, have something in common with Title IX and Oregon Congresswoman Edith Green because of their founding of the Metro League Women’s Tennis in Portland 15 years before Title IX.
