Follow along this virtual field trip to explore “A Path Forward,” a new memorial to voting rights history in Salt Lake City created by artists Kelsey Harrison and Jason Manley. Did you know Utah women were the first in the United States to vote under an equal suffrage law? This sculpture shares that history in the very spot where women cast their first votes in 1870. It pays homage to those first steps toward equality while reminding us of all that’s left to do to ensure that everyone has a say in our government.

Utah women’s history nonprofit Better Days presented this memorial as a gift to the State of Utah to commemorate the 19th Amendment centennial in August 2020, as well as the 150th anniversary of Utah women’s first votes and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act.
