In all the years since, Wyoming has yet to elect its second woman governor. But Democrat Mary Throne is trying to change that this election season. A replica of Ross' portrait is in Throne's living room for inspiration, and she hopes to follow in those footsteps. "I feel like after 95 years it's about time," Throne says with a laugh. Nowadays, Wyoming ranks last in the country when it comes to gender parity in state legislature — only 11 percent of legislators there are women.
