Case: Women in Wyoming must run for office in 2018

Wyoming’s history of making headway for female political leadership is notable. It began in 1869 when Wyoming granted women the right to vote, becoming the Equality State. Women in Wyoming maintained momentum for nearly a century thereafter. In 1894, Wyoming became one of the first states to elect a woman to state office. In 1924, Nellie Tayloe Ross was elected as Wyoming’s governor, becoming the nation’s first female governor. In the mid-1980s, women held nearly a quarter of state legislative seats.
