Official State Motto of Wyoming

The official state motto of Wyoming is "Equal Rights;" Wyoming's state nickname echos this theme: "The Equality State."  All State Mottos

The state motto appears on Wyoming's state seal and state flag. Wyoming was the first state to grant women the right to vote in 1869 (more precisely, women were granted the right to vote so there would be enough voting citizens to meet the population requirement for statehood).
