Recommended Posts

Mar. 9 2022

Wyoming was the first US state to allow women to vote and first state to have a female governor. How, exactly, did a sparsely populated frontier land of cowboys end up on the cutting edge of gender equality decades ahead of the 19th amendment? In a uniquely Wyoming way, including frontier politics that bamboozled the patriarchs of congress, and what was called at the time the “only thoroughly trained and fully equipped Companies of Girl Guards in the world.”
