    Shari Crall will stream a presentation on our Facebook page titled: "The Remarkable Life of Dr. Martha Hughes Cannon".

Dr. Martha Hughes Cannon was elected in Utah as the first woman state senator in America. In the historic election of 1896, Utah gained it's statehood, and returned the right to vote to Utah women, taken away as the federal government waged war against the practice of polygamy. Martha Hughes Cannon was a medical doctor, suffragette and polygamist
wife who ran for the same state senate seat as her Republican husband.

Democrats carried the day, sweeping her into history. In September, 2020, her statue will be placed in the US Congress Statuary Hall to represent Utah, becoming one of two allowed per state.
