Martha Hughes Cannon Documentary and London Olympics on Access Utah Tuesday

Jul 17, 2012

Lee Austin hosts Access Utah Tuesday and talks to producer Nancy Green  and scholar Constance Lieber about Martha Hughes Cannon, a woman in Utah in the 1800s. Cannon was a suffragette, who believed women truly had a right to do what men could, a physician, the first woman state senator, and a sister wife.  

Howard Berkes is the NPR correspondent in Salt Lake City, and will be heading to London for the Olympics, which begin July 27. Berkes joins us for the second half of the program.
