The way it was: Wyoming Commission on the Status of Women -- 1966
Feb 24, 2014 - Staff
Two of Wyoming's best-known women helped launch the new Wyoming Commission on the Status of Women in the 1960s, and Fremont County was well-represented.
When the panel met in Riverton in February 1966, the chairwoman was Margaret Tobin, Dean of Women at the University of Wyoming and one of the commissioners was Edness Kimball Wilkins of Casper, whose name now identifies a Wyoming state park.
State Sen. Willa Wales Corbitt, Riverton's former mayor, also was a member, along with Netta Bell Girard Soderholm of Riverton.
