Women's Suffrage in the West

Tuesday, March 26, 2019
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM  
Northwest College
Intercultural House
565 College Drive
Powell, WY

Join us in the Intercultural House as we observe Women's History Month with this talk, presented by Dr. Amy McKinney, on women’s suffrage in the West. 2019 is the 150th anniversary of women's suffrage in Wyoming so an emphasis will be placed on the suffrage in Wyoming. This talk will look at the arguments for and against suffrage, why western states passed state laws before the east, Wyoming as the first territory and state, and what role Wyoming played in the final push for a federal suffrage amendment in 1919, which was also the 50th anniversary of suffrage in Wyoming (while a territory).

Light refreshments will be provided.
