The Intersection of Politics and Religion in the Utah Suffrage Movement with Katherine Kitterman

Katherine Kitterman

In this episode of the Religious Feminism interview series, Katherine Kitterman, Historical Director for Better Days 2020, talks to us about how national concerns about religious issues in Utah Territory led to Utah women winning the right to vote 50 years before most other American women, losing that right and winning it back. We discuss how Utah women fought for (and against) the right to vote and how they partnered with suffrage leaders on the East Coast to work toward suffrage for all American women.
