Poster 33: Aly Hill – Women’s Suffrage in the Utah Territory: An Analysis of Western Influence and the “Mormon Question”

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Wanda Pillow

While the Utah Territory’s geographic location and conservative Mormon influence made it an unlikely candidate for women’s suffrage, it was the second Territory in the United States to grant women the right to vote in 1870. The focus of this project was to assess, through archival research, the Utah Women’s Suffrage Movement. By conducting discourse analysis, I identified major themes, the role of media, and the participation of Utah Mormon women as they acquired the right to vote.
