March 12, 2020: Dr. Ulrich’s lecture has been cancelled. This was an extremely difficult decision, and so many people are disappointed, but organizers felt it was important to support the governor’s request today for all public universities to be proactive in helping to slow the spread of the coronavirus (or COVID-19) in our community. With public safety foremost on their minds, Weber State administrators have cancelled all university events — including the “Beyond Suffrage” celebration — until March 30. We will work with Dr. Ulrich to bring her to Utah at a later date.
First in the Nation?: Utah Women in the National Suffrage Movement
This year the nation will commemorate the centennial of the 19th Amendment which gave women throughout the nation a right that Utah women first exercised in 1870, fifty years before the rest of the nation. In this lecture, Professor Ulrich will go beyond the account in her recent book A House Full of Females to situate Utah’s story in the context of the larger women’s rights movement in the United States.
This lecture is part of Weber Historical Society and is free and open to the public.
It is sponsored in part by Organization of American Historians and Utah Humanities Council.
Location: WSU Union Building Ballroom
