The Women of Sheridan, Wyo

These are the stories of the icons and outlaws of Sheridan County.


December 10, 2019 marked the 150th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the Equality State, and we launched this series to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the landmark territorial legislative decision. In 1869, Wyoming passed the first law in United States history granting women the right to vote and the right to hold public office, a historic milestone that came more than 50 years before the ratification of the 19th amendment to the US Constitution.
The State of Wyoming and the Wyoming Office of Tourism marked the anniversary with activities, events, retreats and must-visit historic destinations that commemorate the spirit of Wyoming as the first frontier for women. And ever since, Sheridan Travel & Tourism has paid tribute to the icons, outlaws, storytellers and mavericks who make Sheridan their home. We feature artists, innovators, pioneers or personalities with ties to Sheridan and roots in Wyoming. Our program includes a video series, essays, podcasts, stories and more. Join us in celebrating all the Women of Sheridan, Wyo., this year, every year, and every day.
