Wyoming’s territorial assembly passed the Women’s Suffrage Act on December 10, 1869, which opened avenues for the state’s first woman bailiff, their first woman voter, and eventually America’s first female governor, Nellie Tayloe Ross. Laramie Plains Museum Executive Director Mary Mountain gave a tour of the museum’s Suffrage exhibit and highlighted the women of Wyoming who became some of the most prominent pioneers in history.
