Attagirl! Women’s History & Highlights
In honor of 2020's women's suffrage anniversaries.
2020 is a complicated, heartbreaking year, but it's important not to lose sight of one of its important anniversaries. The United States is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, which forbade gender-based voting discrimination in the United States. In Utah, we’re also celebrating another important anniversary — 150 years since the first woman to vote in the country cast her ballot in Salt Lake City. This is perfect timing to consider how you might honor the past and current struggles and achievements of women, including Utah’s notable women’s history.
According to Better Days 2020, a Salt Lake City-based group working to popularize women’s history in the state, Salt Lake City has more standing suffrage sites than Seneca Falls, New York — home of the Women’s Rights National Historical Park.
This itinerary is perfect for a girls’ trip, a solo-adventure or a family vacation focused on educational experiences. It pairs history and time for reflection with active adventure, beautiful scenery and Instagrammable locations.
