Beyond Suffrage: A Century of Northern Utah Women Making History
EXPLORE THE HISTORY
From the mid 1840s, women were arriving in Utah as part of the Mormon pioneers. They struggled to survive in a new land and make a home for their families.
Women took center stage in Northern Utah as they began businesses, ran for politics and helped to shape the community.
Since the beginning, women have played an instrumental role in the shaping of education at Weber State.
This time period was one of growth and opportunities for women. They fought for the right to vote to be added to the Utah Constitution.
Building on the women before them, women of this era sought to better the world around them and to change for the better.
