    WXXI CELEBRATE 2020 THE STATE OF WYOMING

    On September 30, 1889, the territory of Wyoming approved a constitution that included a provision granting women the right to vote. When it was formally admitted into the union the following year, Wyoming became the first state in the history of the nation to allow female citizens the right to vote.

    What are Civil Liberties?

    Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events. Our word of the day is “Civil Liberty” The freedom to act, assemble, think or speak as you wish, regulated only as much as is needed for the good of other people.

    Professor Steve Bickerstaff Discusses the Constitution and Voting in the US
