Around 1847, the Mormons, led by Brigham Young, arrived in the Utah Territory. As they settled the land and built communities, they also established local government and passed laws. The Utah Territory made history in 1870 when it became one of the few places in the United States to give women the right to vote. Suffragist, child rights and working-class advocate Kate S. Hilliard once lived in the community of Ogden, Utah. In 1902 and 1904 she was nominated for the position of state representative.
