Random info about Wyoming and women (I told you it was random) found in the State Legislatures magazine:
- The Wyoming Territory (it became a state in 1890) in 1869 was the first to give all women the right to vote. Side note: Women who owned property in New Jersey were allowed to vote between 1790 and 1807
- Wyoming (known as the Equality State) had the first female justice of the peace, bailiff, all female jury and governor.
- Neighboring Colorado, however, had the first woman who was elected to the legislature and still has the highest percentage of female lawmakers
