In May 1893, Emily Richards traveled to Chicago to participate in the World’s Congress of Representative Women, a convention planned in conjunction with the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. The Congress convened women’s groups from every state and from 27 countries. Richards spoke at the meeting organized by the Young Ladies Mutual Improvement Association. Her address, “The Legal and Political Status of Woman in Utah,” was later published in the two-volume account, The World’s Congress of Representative Women (1894).
