A Woman’s Rights Woman

Utah women were the first in the nation to vote. Their voting rights were under constant threat, however, from people who weren't happy that polygamy persisted in Utah, or who felt that voting was degrading to women. Host Dianna Douglas shares some of their petitions to Congress, articles from Utah’s suffrage newspaper, and their reactions to Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton speaking in the tabernacle.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
