Neighborhood House and Better Days invite you to a marker dedication for Emma McVicker on the National Votes for Women Trail. A suffragist, educator, and advocate for women and children, McVicker became the first woman in Utah’s executive branch of government when she served as the State Superintendent of Schools in 1900. She founded Neighborhood House to provide job training, English classes, and childcare for working women – and the institution continues to provide quality, affordable child and elder care today.

This marker celebrate’s Emma’s work to restore equal suffrage for women when Utah became a state. She was one of thousands of Utah women who joined in the cause!

Lt. Governor Deidre Henderson and Utah State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sydnee Dickson will speak, as well as representatives from Neighborhood House and Better Days. Neighborhood House’s preschool graduation will immediately follow.
