The State of Equality
Written and directed by Caldera Productions and co-produced with Wyoming PBS. With the national campaign for a women’s suffrage amendment stalled, the thinly populated Wyoming Territory in 1869 became the first democracy in the modern world to recognize a woman’s unqualified right to vote. Colorful frontier characters, a volatile mix of motives, and the caprice of history drive this story of a neglected chapter in America’s past.
