One of our archivists, Michaele Smith, has had an article published in the latest Utah Historical Quarterly!  The article is based upon a chapter of her PhD dissertation, and is an examination of rape cases in Utah during World War II and the years preceding it to explore the difficulties women faced when reporting rape.

Michaele received her PhD in American Studies from the College of William and Mary in 2013, and has authored many of the entries for this blog.

Check out the article’s Web Extra on the Utah Historical Quarterly’s website, and read the entire article in the Summer 2017 (volume 85, number 3) issue recently released.

A cartoon from “The Wolf,” a syndicated comic. Printed in the “Hillfielder,” a Hill Air Force Base newspaper, in 1945. The cartoon implied that women could defend unwanted advances if they really wanted to.
