Local historians Rick Ewig and Mike Kassel will delve into the political and social environment of the nation and Wyoming prior to the passage of Women’s suffrage. Why was Wyoming first? What happened after the bill was passed? Why was there an almost immediate attempt to repeal the law and how did therepeal become a condition of statehood?
