The Equality State Moviesby Hoekkie | created - 10 months ago | updated - 10 months ago | Public
The Equality State is the official nickname of Wyoming. Wyoming was the first state to grant women the right to vote in 1869 (more precisely, women were granted the right to vote so there would be enough voting citizens to meet the population requirement for statehood). This action lead to the nickname The Suffrage State and then later The Equality State (source: statesymbolsusa.org). Wyoming became the 44th state of the United States of America in 1890.
