The History Of Women Reinventing The World On Tuesday's Access Utah

Utah Women's Giving Circle

The Utah Women’s Giving Circle is presenting a series of events this month and next titled “Resilience 2020: From Susan B. Anthony to RBG: The History, Resilience, and Call to Community.” The first event is this week. Katherine Kitterman and Tiffany Greene from Better Days 2020 will discuss “The History of Women Reinventing the World.”

They will paint the historical backdrop of how women have led forward in times of difficulty, coming together to create the cultural movements that shaped our state, nation and world for the better. Katherine Kitterman and Tiffany Greene will join us for Access Utah on Tuesday.

Katherine Kitterman is the Historical Director for Better Days 2020. She is the co-author of Champions of Change: 25 Women Who Made History and Thinking Women: A Timeline of Suffrage in Utah. She is a Ph.D. candidate at American University in Washington, D.C., where she has worked to bring history to life at the Smithsonian, the Holocaust Memorial Museum, and Woodrow Wilson House.

Tiffany Greene is a historical research consultant for Better Days 2020, where she has specifically worked to uncover the history of the rural suffrage movement in Utah.
