“Wyoming has a proud history of leading the women’s suffrage movement, granting women the right to vote half a century before the ratification of the 19th Amendment. This resolution celebrates the trailblazing nature of Wyoming women and highlights their achievements on behalf of our state and the nation. I’m proud to champion legislation to honor our proud Wyoming history of leading the nation and the world on women’s suffrage. The world needs more cowgirls!”
