Event to Honor Martha Hughes Cannon Statue

In partnership with PBS Utah and Better Days, UNLADYLIKE2020’s documentary short about Martha Hughes Cannon, the first woman state senator in the United States, will be screening at an event in Salt Lake City in November. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with local students as part of PBS Utah’s “She Votes Utah” campaign to encourage voting and civic participation among young women.

The event is also designed to raise awareness about a new statue of Martha Hughes Cannon, designed by sculptor Ben Hammond, that will soon be installed at National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. to represent the state of Utah. Each state is allowed two statues in the Hall; Cannon will be replacing a statue of TV inventor Philo T. Farnsworth.
