Women and Girls Lead: Coloradans making history

Former Senator Pat Pascoe, who served in the Colorado State Senate for 12 years until 2003, has written a biography, “Helen Ring Robinson: Colorado Senator and Suffragist,” about the woman who paved the way back in 1912. 

Helen Ring Robinson was not only the first woman ever to serve in the Colorado legislature, she was also elected before there had been a woman in Congress or the British Parliament, and before American women had the right to vote. 

Video descriptions:

Housewife of the Senate (1:05)

Pat Pascoe reads from Helen Ring Robinson’s own description of her role after she was elected, which she saw as an obligation and an  opportunity to improve the lives of women and children, at a time when neither group had many legal protections.

Ahead of her Time (1:17)

Not all of Robinson’s ideas about how to help abused children, the mentally ill and women drawn into prostitution succeeded, but they undoubtedly laid the groundwork for laws that were eventually enacted.

Women in office (:59)

Pat Pascoe reflects on how the United States is still behind most of the world when it comes to the number of women elected leaders, and in Colorado, there has never been a woman governor although our legislature is more integrated than some states. 

Champion for suffrage (1:13)

Pascoe talks about Helen Ring Robinson’s commitment to campaigning around the country for the right to vote for women in the U.S.
