Elected Women in Colorado
Strong Sisters: Elected Women in Colorado tells the extraordinary story of elected women in Colorado.
Why does Colorado stand out when it comes to electing women to public office? What difference have elected women made in our state? And why hasn't Colorado elected a female Governor, U.S. Senator, or Mayor of Denver?
Strong Sisters examines these questions and inspires today's women to build on our remarkable history.
"The other ninety legislators don't see my way all the time but I'm ready to sit down and work it out. When the going gets rough, they know I'm not the weak sister." - Colorado State Senator Ruth Stockton
