Celebrating Susan B. Anthony

February 15, 2020

This week, Utahns across the state celebrated several historically significant events in the state’s suffrage movement. From the 150th anniversary of the Utah Territorial legislature granting women voting rights to the first woman casting a vote under equal suffrage law, we have recognized many women in Utah’s history that have contributed to the movement towards equal rights for women.

Today, we recognize and honor one of the most renowned advocates and leaders in the women’s suffrage movement: Susan B. Anthony. Anthony was a passionate activist for justice and emancipation of slaves as she devoted her life to working towards social equality for all.

Even after her death, Anthony’s tenacity and courage paved the way for the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. Today, her legacy resonates through our nation as we continue to strive for social justice and equality for all.

Today we celebrate Susan B. Anthony and her legacy of social reform and her role within the women’s suffrage movement. Even today, Anthony’s well-known voice rings out on behalf of women’s rights and social equality across the nation.

The Utah Attorney General’s Office is proud to partner with organizations like Better Days 2020, who are raising awareness about the value of female leaders in civil and corporate communities, and to work alongside the many women in this office dedicated to public service who follow in the footsteps of Susan B. Anthony and all those who dedicated their lives to this end.

“Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.” – Susan B. Anthony
