In 2020, YWCA Utah will celebrate strong women of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. 2020 is a milestone year for women in the United States, as it marks 100 years since the ratifying of the 19th Amendment, which granted American women the right to vote. We will spend the year celebrating strong women from all walks of life by sharing their stories and honoring those whose contributions have made a significant impact towards women’s empowerment and racial justice. We will also invite the community to share their personal stories and join our efforts. When women thrive, so too do their families and communities, and 2020 is an opportunity to celebrate women’s strength while continuing our work to advance the well-being of Utah women and their families through safety, opportunity, and advocacy.

YWCA Utah believes that empowering women and eliminating racism are intertwined, and our current work draws from the strength of the many women who have preceded us in these efforts. The Celebrate Strong Women t-shirt kicks off YWCA Utah’s 2020 celebration by featuring four women whose work was integral to the women’s suffrage and civil rights movements, but whose stories may not be well-known.
