In 1893 Colorado became the first state in which women got the right to vote through popular election (Wyoming women had previously been granted the right to vote by the territorial legislature in 1869, but not by popular vote). The following year, 3 women were elected on November 6, 1894 to serve in the Colorado General Assembly.
As of March 2018 266 women have served in the Colorado legislature, while 2300 men have served there.
The Colorado Legislative Women’s Caucus has published a booklet which includes brief biographies of a selection of women who have served in the Colorado legislature. To learn more about this booklet, email the Strong Sisters at email@example.com.
