Cody Culture Club
Join us September 18th for Who's on First?: 150 years of Wyoming Women in the Equality State. This program was originally scheduled in April as the final Cody Culture Club program of the 2020 season. We're thrilled to offer it now as a featured event preceding the Friday night Art Walk of Rendezvous Royale.
In 2020, the United States celebrates the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, a landmark recognition of women's right to vote. But Wyoming can claim a more significant 'first': 150 years ago, it became the first government in the world to guarantee and never retract unconditional women's suffrage.
University of Wyoming Historian Renee Laegried joins producer Geoff O'Gara to screen an excerpt of the documentary The State of Equality and discuss Wyoming's championing of women's rights, surveying its successes and failures living up to the name "Equality State."
Open to the public, limited seating.
