WYOMING \u2014 Wyoming continues to commemorate 150 years of women\u2019s suffrage and firsts for women in the nation. An ATA semitruck and trailer \u2013 fully wrapped to honor Wyoming\u2019s Louisa Swain - will make its way across the nation via I-70, with a special stop at the Wyoming State Capitol in Cheyenne, Wyo. on Sept 4 at 10 a.m. Wyoming\u2019s First Lady Jennie Gordon will welcome the semitruck from the front steps of the State Capitol and offer a few opening remarks before it makes its final stop in Laramie Wyo. on Sept. 5. As the United States honors the 100th anniversary of the 19th\u00a0Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote,\u00a0Wyoming will mark the 150th anniversary of the first woman to vote on Sept. 6. On the morning of Sept. 6, 1870, in Laramie, Wyo., Louisa Swain made history by becoming the first woman to cast an electoral ballot under laws giving women full civil and political equality with men. In 2019, Wyoming celebrated the 150th anniversary of women\u2019s suffrage \u2013 50 years before the 19th\u00a0Amendment \u2013 and the\u00a0Wyoming Office of Tourism\u00a0marked the milestone by declaring it the \u201cYear of Wyoming Women\u201d with special exhibits and events throughout the state. On Dec. 10, 1869, the Wyoming territory became the first in the nation to guarantee women the unconditional suffrage including the right to vote, hold public office and serve on a jury. \u201cAs we celebrate Women\u2019s Equality Day today, it\u2019s important to recognize the trailblazing women, like Louisa Swain, who paved the way for so many women and for future generations,\u201d\u00a0said Diane Shober, executive director of Wyoming Office of Tourism.\u00a0\u201cThe West played a pivotal role in the passing of the 19th\u00a0Amendment and the pioneering spirit of Wyoming\u2019s women continues to live on today.\u201d To commemorate the milestone anniversary,\u00a0Wyoming Office of Tourism\u00a0partnered with\u00a0The\u00a0Louisa Swain Foundation\u00a0and the\u00a0American Trucking Association\u00a0(ATA) for a\u00a0virtual women\u2019s suffrage road tour\u00a0from Washington D.C. to Laramie, Wyo. starting on August 31. \u201cWe will utilize the unique convergence of the anniversaries of Louisa\u2019s historic vote and the ratification of the 19th amendment to highlight the role women play in our society and to celebrate Wyoming\u2019s ongoing legacy as the Equality State,\u201d\u00a0said Brandon Kirkham, board chair for The Louisa Swain Foundation. \u201cWe are proud to have such a wonderful partnership with the Wyoming Office of Tourism and the American Trucking Association to bring this commemorative moment to a national scale.\u201d Following the arrival of the semitruck and trailer in Laramie, a ceremony recognizing Louisa Swain\u2019s historic vote will take place at the\u00a0Wyoming Women\u2019s History House\u00a0on Sept. 6 at 1 p.m. Twenty years after the 1869 law passed, Wyoming sought statehood and it famously refused to enter the Union if women\u2019s suffrage was not upheld. And in 1890, Wyoming officially entered the Union as the 44th\u00a0state and the first state to guarantee women these rights.
