150 years ago, the first vote under a women's suffrage law was cast and counted.
That happened right here in Utah. At that moment, Seraph Young and her vote changed the lives of women forever. Utah women later fought alongside their fellow Americans to pass the 19th Amendment. The 19th Amendment extended women’s voting rights throughout the United States, but the struggle for suffrage continued beyond 1920 for many women of color. We witness the legacy of these great leaders every day in strong, influential, female trailblazers across Utah in our families and communities. To honor the 150th anniversary of that first women’s vote, show us how you live the Utah women’s legacy of leadership. Join Better Days 2020 as we celebrate our Utah HERitage!
