Pioneering the Vote: The Untold Story of Suffragists in Utah and the West

by: Neylan McBaine

Tells the remarkable, largely unknown story of the suffrage victories that happened in the American West. With the encouragement of their Eastern sisters, women from Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, and Utah organized into one group whose goal was to win the right to vote, state by state. This culminated in May of 1895 when 8,000 people–including East Coast suffragists Susan B. Anthony and Reverend Anna Howard Shaw–attended the Rocky Mountain Suffrage Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. This book brings together the stories of those influential Western women.
