Revisiting 'UNLADYLIKE2020' On Tuesday's Access Utah


On Tuesday’s Access Utah, Tom Williams will talk with UNLADYLIKE2020 Executive Producer Sandra Rattley and series creator Charlotte Mangin.

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. 

UNLADYLIKE2020 was originally scheduled to be part of USU's Voting Rights Symposium back in March, which was postponed due to COVID-19. The voting rights symposium has been tentatively rescheduled to take place September 17-18, with the Cache Celebrations and UNLADYLIKE2020 to take place on August 26th. More information on these tentative dates can be found at history.usu.edu.
