Wyoming is also known by the name of the "Equality State" because the women rights have always been respected here. The women of Wyoming were the first ones to vote, hold public office and serve on juries.

Wyoming also became the first government in the whole world to give its women "female suffrage". In 1869 a bill granting women the right to vote was enacted, and on the 10th of December it was signed into law.

Ester Hobart Morris was the first woman Justice of the Peace in the USA. A mother of three boys, she began her tenure as justice in South Pass City, Wyoming, on the 14th of February, 1870, serving a term of less than nine months

The first US woman to vote in a general election was Mrs. Louisa Swain of Laramie. She cast her ballot on the 6th of September, 1870.
