This is Her Place
Stories of Utah Women, Past & Present
CacheARTS Presents This is Her Place at The Ellen Eccles Theatre on October 21, 2020. CacheARTS is the official ticketing source for The Ellen Eccles Theater and The CacheARTS Presents National Touring Season. Tickets go on sale on September 21, 2020.
This Is Her Place will introduce you to women famous and forgotten, rich and poor, believers and skeptics, feminists and traditionalists, from all races and every part of the state—and the unique stories of how each has made Utah her place.
Businesswomen and religious leaders, poets and politicians, healers and homemakers, artists and activists, women in the Beehive state have never fit into easy stereotypes. Through interviews and lively narrative retellings, each episode features at least two women, one historical and one contemporary, whose stories are distinct but whose lives illuminate a common theme. These subjects encompass the range of women’s lives and experiences—famous and forgotten, rich and poor, believers and skeptics, feminists and traditionalists, from all races and every part of the state. Their stories will make you laugh, cry, and, most of all, think. After getting to know these compelling women, you’ll be inspired by the unique way each of them has made Utah her place.
This Is Her Place is co-hosted by educational leader and community builder Naomi Watkins and longtime radio host Tom Williams. Produced by Allison Pond, with executive producer Patrick Mason, the podcast is generously supported by funding from private donors and Utah State University’s “Year of the Woman” initiative. It aims for a broad audience, including public radio listeners as well as history and social studies educators for whom the podcast will be a valuable classroom resource.
