UNLADYLIKE2020: A Night Of Innovative Media Featuring Utah’s Female Heroes

UNLADYLIKE2020 is an innovative multimedia series featuring extraordinary, unsung women who changed America at the turn of the 20th century, launching in 2020 in honor of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, and the 150th anniversary of Utah women’s suffrage.

Come see this research presentation on Martha Hughes Cannon and Zitkala-Ša, two women who had tremendous impact on Utah and U.S. history, and a sneak peek screening of the first episode of the multimedia series.

Date: Monday, April 22, at 7:00 pm
Location: Salt Lake City Public Library Auditorium, 210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, UT

Purchase tickets for the event HERE

UNLADYLIKE2020 presents the rich history of 26 American women, of very diverse professional and historical experiences, geographical, racial-ethnic, and class backgrounds, sexual orientation and gender identities. The series will include: the first woman to found a hospital on a Native American reservation, serve in the U.S. Congress, become a bank president, earn an international pilot’s license, climb the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, sing opera at Carnegie Hall, and direct a feature-length movie, among others.  

Set to launch in 2020, the series will be released digitally on a weekly basis from March 1, the start of Women’s History Month, to August 26, 2020, to commemorate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote, and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. Designed to appeal to youth, history enthusiasts, biography buffs, and those interested in women’s issues and women’s stories, UNLADYLIKE2020 will be accompanied by a vibrant social media campaign, educational curriculum in schools and universities, and community screenings and engagement events across the United States.

What We’re Up Against

Wasatch Theatre Company is offering a special fundraising performance for our #801creativewomen initiative!
Tickets are $30 and all proceeds go toward #801CreativeWomen’s mission to promote gender equity in the cultural and creative sector.   Click here to purchase tickets
“What We’re Up Against” is a black comedy that takes a serious look at the ways women are treated in male-dominated work environments. This is Wasatch Theatre Company’s (WTC’s) effort to insert the regional theatre conversation into the #MeToo and #Time’sUp movements. Recently revised in New York, “What We’re Up Against” is one of the nation’s most popular shows. Eliza is an employee at an architecture firm, and she is tired of being slighted, ignored, and patronized because of her sex. She wonders what she has to do to have her ideas seriously considered. When she takes matters into her own creative hands, her colleagues and supervisors respond in humorously uncomfortable but all too-familiar ways. This is a piece that everyone should see, especially now, and one that WTC hopes sparks a community-wide dialogue. This is a world premiere of the newest version!
