Clearly, women should have always had the right to vote.

However, as backward as some in California tend to think the mid-western "flyover" states are, Utah was the first state to give women the right to vote by ratifying it. The women in Wyoming were actually the first ones to exercise their rights -- only because Wyoming's election was held before Utah's.

Also, On November 3, 1896, Martha Hughes Cannon from Utah became the first female State Senator elected in the United States, defeating her own husband, who was also on the ballot.
