Women's Rights on the Frontier

by Therese DeAngelis

The story of the women's suffrage movement in the American West is one of expansion, courage, and struggle. It begins in 1869, when Wyoming Territory recognized full and equal voting rights for a population of just 1,000 women. As the demand for equality spread throughout the country, the West became a symbol of the equality and opportunity women sought. Discover what drove the women's rights movement in the West, and how the battles women fought on the frontiers of America made them pioneers not only of geography, but also of history.
