AWE (A Woman’s Experience)

women's suffrage movement, women's vote in Utah, Seraph Young


I was drawn to the women’s suffrage movement because of its impact on our world today. 2020 marked the 150th anniversary of America’s first female vote, cast by Seraph Young in Utah. That day made history, immortalizing the effort of countless other women beforehand, coming together to achieve a common goal. Speaking up and advocating for what we know we deserve has been, and will continue to be, a historical struggle. However, anything is possible if we work together and fight for it long and hard enough. Recognizing the efforts and successes of women who came before us brings inspiration, appreciation, and determination to continue progressing towards the equality we deserve.
