Podcast – Women and Power at the Alta Club


Gender inequality is today’s hot topic—we hope it’s tomorrow’s topic too. In this era of #metoo and #timesup, it’s interesting to look back on some barrier-bashing in our own Salt Lake City. It wasn’t until a century after the Alta Club‘s founding that women  were allowed to become members.  Salt Lake Speaks features a conversation with the first woman member, Genevieve Atwood,  about the legacy of the Alta Club, how it feels to have been the first woman admitted and whether that mattered.

Listen below.
