Wyoming’s state motto is The Equality State. In 1869, Wyoming became the first state to grant women the right to vote, but is also home to many firsts for women:

First Woman Justice of the Peace: Esther Hobart Morris, pictured here, was appointed February 17, 1870 in South Pass City.
First All-Woman Jury: The first all-woman jury was sworn in March 7, 1870 in Laramie.
First Woman Bailiff: In 1870, Mary Atkinson of Albany County was appointed the first woman bailiff in the world.
First Woman Governor in the U.S: Nellie Tayloe Ross was elected to complete the term of her husband who died in office. She served from 1925 to 1927. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed her the first woman to head the U.S. Mint, a position she held until 1953.
First Woman Elected to the Wyoming State Senate: Dora McGrath, a Republican from Thermopolis, for Hot Springs County in 1930.
First Woman Elected to the Wyoming State House of Representatives: Mary G. Bellamy, a Democrat from Albany County, in 1910.
First Woman Statewide Elected Official: Estelle Reel was elected as Superintendent of Public Instruction in 1894.
First Town in America to be Governed Entirely by Women: The city of Jackson, from 1920 to 1921, had a woman mayor, town council and town marshal. One of the councilwomen defeated her husband for her council seat.

However, women in Wyoming, while accomplishing many firsts, are falling behind economically now. Presently, Wyoming has the largest wage gap in the nation between men and women. Very few of our legislators are women. As we can see, Wyoming has been a leader when it comes to equality for women. How do we, as a state, embrace equality for all Wyomingites once more? -Meg Lanker-Simons Guest Blogger

Social Media Policies for Your Office? What's That?

Don’t leave your employees or volunteers guessing!  Putting policies and procedures in place is important – that way everyone is clear on what to do, how to act and what to expect. 

When it comes to social media, creating a workplace policy isn’t as easy as you might think. 

Rose Caiazzo of Rose Consulting will review the ambiguity in most policies that technically violate the law and restrict people’s rights.  She’ll give guidance on the best way to structure the wording for your nonprofit, while also giving some tips on the hottest social networking strategies for your organization.

When:June 29th 2012 8:30am
Where: St. John's Episcopal Church, Hansen Hall  Jackson Hole

Baltimore, MD, March 2012 –

T.C. Galltin has ventured out on her own as a self-published author with the re-release of her debut novel Zaire’s Place. After parting ways with her ex-publisher, All Things That Matter Press, she has decided this was the best route to get her work back into the hands of the public. With a new cover and reedited work, she is hoping there will be renewed interest in her project.

Zaire’s Place tells the story of three very different women at a domestic violence shelter in Baltimore, MD. It’s real…it’s raw…and three women will never be the same. Domestic violence is an issue that Ms. Galltin has dealt with personally. It is her hope that her novel will encourage women dealing with abuse to get help. “I am excited about this new chapter of my life,” T.C. Galltin stated. “It feels so good to have creative control over your own work. With the re-release of my novel, I am my own boss, which is a breath of fresh air.” She said that she is grateful to be living in a time when authors hold the key to their own future, rather than relying on a publisher to make things happen for them.

 Ms. Galltin also said that she does not want to focus on the past and is looking forward with great optimism to her future as a published author. She has fallen in love with the ladies of Zaire’s Place and hopes the world will, too. “DV is a serious issue, but Zaire’s Place entertains as well as enlightens. The women of ZP are quite a group of characters. I feel like I’m longtime friends with them,” Ms. Galltin stated.
Zaire’s Place is available in Kindle format from Readers who do not own a Kindle can download Amazon’s free software for PCs. To find out more about Ms. Galltin, visit her main website,, or her blog,
