In the year 2020, Utahans are commemorating the 150th anniversary of Utah women’s first votes, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which extended women’s voting rights across the country, and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, which outlawed racial discrimination in voting laws. In this presentation, Katherine Kitterman, Historical Director of Better Days 2020, will speak about these anniversaries and explain Utah’s leading role in the suffrage movement. On February 14, 1870, Utah women were the first in the U.S. to cast ballots under a women’s suffrage law, and they actually gained voting rights twice before 1900! Katherine will share how Utah women made history, how they paved the way for women’s voting rights across the nation, and how they continued to work for truly equal suffrage for all women even after 1920. She will also share stories of local suffragists and women’s advocates who improved their communities in a variety of ways.
