Women's Voting Rights in Colorado-Middle School
On November 7, 1893, Colorado became the first state in the nation to grant women’s suffrage by a single issue popular vote, and the following year the first three female state legislators were elected. This proud achievement was result of nearly 15 years of struggle and dedication. Tenacious Coloradans across the state shouted “Let the women vote! They can’t do any worse than the men!” as they marched door-to-door in churches, mining towns and farming communities. Today, Colorado boasts the highest percentage of women in the state legislature.
