Previous airings of "Martha Hughes Cannon" on:
She was a physician, the first female senator in the United States, an advocate, suffragette and a sister wife. Martha Hughes Cannon was a remarkable, complicated woman. KUED tells her compelling story in a new one-hour documentary. For "Mattie," the clash between romance and faith, between ambition and tradition, would test her throughout her life, propelling her to great heights, breaking barriers both visible and invisible. For all of her hardship and success, Mattie struggled with issues that still affect us today – how to balance life and family, how to live between your ideals and reality.
