Utah was one of the first places to grant women the right to vote, and in 1870 was one of only two territories or states where women could vote on equal terms with men. Moreover, Utah led the way on woman suffrage twice: as a territory in 1870 and as a new state in 1896. The history of woman suffrage in Utah was a complicated one that involved the struggle for statehood, polygamy and federal attempts to stamp it out, and involvement with Mormons and Godbeites. Helping with utah's efforts were national suffragists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, and local leaders such as Emmeline B. Wells and Martha Hughes Cannon. Carol Madsen has collected from a variety of sources the best current scholarship on the topic. Together, these essays provide a complete history of woman suffrage in Utah. Battle For The Ballot: Essays On Women Suffrage In Utah, 1870-1896 is a valuable addition to any academic and community library collection, and especially for all American West Studies, Women's Studies, and Political Science Studies reading lists. -- Midwest Book Review
