LDS Women’s Education, 1875 – 1896

The education of Latter-day Saint women in the late 19th century was similar to women’s education generally on the American frontier. For example, the increasing demand for women professionals could be satisfied only by vocational education. Ellis Shipp left Utah to study at the Philadelphia Women’s Medical College, then returned to Utah and practiced as a doctor. She went on to establish the School of Nursing and Obstetrics in 1879, thereby helping to educate Latter-day Saint women.
