State Nickname:

The nickname for Wyoming is The Equality State.  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.  This action lead to the nickname The Suffrage State and then later The Equality State.
