Wyoming Motto
Equal Rights
The state motto of Wyoming is "Equal Rights".

The Wyoming state motto was adopted in 1893 by state Legislature and the Wyoming state motto is featured as part of the state seal.

The Wyoming motto "Equal Rights" is a proud statement of the high status Wyoming through history has attributed women.

The motto refers to the year of 1869 when the Wyoming Constitution as the first 'modern' state granted women the right to vote and to hold public office. However, as 'modern' the equality thought might seem, it does bear to mention, that the reason behind allowing women to vote was not to benefit women as such but to ensure enough votes so the population requirements for statehood could be met.
