What was the first U.S. state to give women the right to vote?

Wyoming was the first U.S. state to give women the right to vote in 1869, when it was still just a territory.

Colorado was next in 1893. Utah and Idaho followed in 1896.

The next state to grant suffrage was Washington, but it wasn’t until after the turn of the century in 1910.

These days, all women in the U.S. have the right to vote.
