Fifty-One Years of Freedom: Wyoming’s Suffrage Story, 1869-1920
September 29 @ 6:30 pm
On Thursday, September 29th at 6:30 p.m., the Cody Library will host Kylie Louise McCormick, Wyoming historian, to speak about the origins of voting rights for women in the Equality State. In her talk entitled, “Fifty-One Years of Freedom: Wyoming’s Suffrage Story, 1869-1920,” McCormick will discuss Wyoming’s role in this key area of U.S. history:
“In 1869 Wyoming made history as the first U.S. territory to give women the right to vote. Fifty-one years later, the nation followed Wyoming’s lead. A fresh take on a longstanding controversy, this presentation offers critical new evidence to Wyoming’s suffrage story and restores the contributions to the movement made by both Dr. Grace Raymond Hebard and Esther Hobart Morris.”
The event is free and open to the public.
