The first men to vote for women

Title

The first men to vote for women

Description

In 1893, men in Colorado voted to let women vote - the first time such a thing had ever happened. 16 years earlier a referendum failed in CO - just like in KS, MI, NE, OR, RI, WA & SD. So how'd we finally win? [1/2]
