  1. the Wyoming thing isn't exactly accurate. Women getting the right to vote in Wyoming was more of a political move that was originally designed to try to get the governor at the time (I think, I would have to re look it up) kicked out of office. people ended up voting for it just bc nobody thought it would actually pass

  2. Women did more to develop the west than men???? Is that found on a feminist forum???

    Men built the towns, Men built the schools and churches. Women just provided money made by dirty jobs.

  3. If prostitution was legal, the women would generate more economic power than the men, converting society from a patriarchy to a matriarchy, it makes sense why it isn't legal.

  4. Yaaa I'm pretty sure women didn't take there money and start businesses that part is a made up lie. Some did but majority of women were wanting too own business they wanted land a family and a strong husband. I have never seen so much manipulation as this. Who cares anyway your not gonna change history I feel like that's what this is re writing history. Lies lies devil lies

  5. All this one really does is perpetuate yet another infamous misconception about the Wild West. Most saloon girls weren't prostitutes. Some were, but they only worked at the really upscale places.
