League of Women Voters of Davis & Weber Counties Free Documentary Screening

The League of Women Voters of Davis and Weber Counties and the Olene S. Walker Institute at Weber State University invite you to attend a free screening of the KUED documentary "Utah's First Female Senator: Martha Hughes Cannon". Martha received her M.D. from the University of Michigan and became resident physician at Deseret Hospital in Salt Lake City. She married Angus M. Cannon as a plural wife in 1884. She became active in the Utah and later the national suffrage movement advocating that women should have the right to vote. The Utah Territory granted women the right to vote in 1870, but that right was taken away by national legislation the same year. When Utah women received the right to vote through the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, Martha Hughes Cannon ran against her husband in an election for the Utah State Senate and she defeated him. She was the first woman in the United States to be elected to a state senate. (Two other Utah women were elected to the Utah House in the same election).
