Utah Women 20/20: Utah's Legacy Of Women's Advocacy With Neylan McBaine On Monday's Access Utah

BYU Political Science Blog

We hope you’ll join us for our newest UPR Original Series, called Utah Women 20/20, which will explore the unique challenges and opportunities facing women in Utah today. We’re going to explore Gender Parity, the #MeToo movement, Elections, and much more. We begin the series today on Access Utah. Our guest is Neylan McBaine, CEO of Better Days 2020. Better Days 2020 says that “Utah helped lead the nation in advocating for women’s rights. [And we believe] that by popularizing our history in creative and communal ways, we can challenge Utahns to live up to this great legacy of women's advocacy.”  

Neylan McBaine grew up in New York City and later attended Yale University. She currently lives with her husband and three young daughters and works as a brand strategist in Salt Lake City. She is the founder and editor-in-chief of the Mormon Women Project, a digital library of interviews with LDS women from around the world. Neylan McBaine is author of Women at Church: Magnifying LDS Women’s Local Impact and How to Be a Twenty-First Century Pioneer Woman.
