ATTENTION: Due to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States and around the world, we will be postponing this event. Tentatively, we have rescheduled this event to take place September 17-18, with the Cache Celebrations and UNLADYLIKE2020 to take place on August 26th.  

We express our deepest regret that we had to cancel this event for the time being, but please be safe, and we look forward to seeing you all in the fall.

About Our Conference:

In 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granted many women in the nation the right to vote for the first time. Fifty years earlier, Utah had been among the first territories to enfranchise women, and Utah allowed women’s suffrage again in 1895 after statehood. Despite these advances and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, key groups still remained excluded. To reflect on the meaning of these significant anniversaries, Utah State University will host an interdisciplinary symposium in March 2020 that commemorates the historic events that gave political rights to women, but that also reflects on ongoing struggles for access to the vote.


This program has received funding from Utah Humanities (UH). UH empowers Utahns to improve their communities through active engagement in the humanities. Additional funding was provided by the Tanner Humanities Grant in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Office of the Provost at Utah State University.
