9780762749010: More than Petticoats: Remarkable Utah Women (More than Petticoats Series)

Utah offers a paradox in women's history―a state founded by polygamists who offered women early suffrage and encouraged career education in the nineteenth century. More than Petticoats: Remarkable Utah Women tells the stories of twelve strong and determined women who broke through the social, cultural, or political barriers of the day. The women in these pages include Emmeline B. Wells (1828–1921), president of the Mormon Women's Relief Society, editor of Exponent, and president of the Woman Suffrage Association of Utah; and Reva Beck Bosone (1895–1983), Utah Congresswoman and the state's first female judge, who voted against the formation of the CIA and was smeared in the anticommunism crusade of the 1950s. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in women's studies, history, and the story of Utah.

From the Back Cover:

Moving portraits of thirteen independent women who helped make Utah what it is today

 

More than Petticoats: Remarkable Utah Women profiles the lives of thirteen of the state’s most important historical figures—women from across the Beehive State, from many different backgrounds and various walks of life. With enduring strength and compassion, these remarkable women broke through social, cultural, or political barriers to make contributions to society that still have an impact today.

 

Read about:


Emmeline B. Wells, a leading journalist who served as president of the Woman Suffrage Association of Utah.


Martha Hughes Cannon, the doctor who made history in 1896 by being elected America’s first female state senator—defeating her own husband in the process.


Jodie and Anne Bassett, the hot-tempered and wily “Wild West Sisters” who helped Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch escape and rode with them on the Outlaw Trail.


Reva Beck Bosone, Utah congresswoman and the state’s first female judge, who voted against establishing the CIA and was smeared in the 1950s anticommunism crusade.


Each of these women demonstrated an independence of spirit that is as inspiring now as it was then. Read about their extraordinary lives in this captivating collection of biographies.
