On February 14, 1870, Utah women became the first in the United States to vote under a women’s equal suffrage law. Utah women paved the way for suffrage in the rest of the country, but there was always more to do to ensure all women have access to the ballot. Many women’s groups such as the League of Women Voters formed to encourage voter registration and educate women about political issues. Are you registered to vote? What can you do to help all voices be heard in government?
“I am ready to do anything within my power and no sacrifice is too great.”
