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.
Interviewer: Mary Brown Malouf
Guest: Genevieve Atwood, Alta Club‘s first woman member
