March is Women’s History Month!

On this day in 1924, Nellie Tayloe Ross becomes the first woman to serve as governor of a state, in Wyoming. She was elected to succeed her deceased husband, William Bradford Ross, thus inaugurating the long American tradition of women obtaining elected office by standing on the corpses of their dead husbands.

It’s been said that behind every successful man, there is a woman. Usually left unsaid: beneath every successful woman, there is a dead body.
