Our initiatives includeWyoming Women’s Legislative Caucus and our award-winning documentary film, Don’t Fence Me In.

Wyoming Women’s Legislative Caucus

The nonpartisan Wyoming Women’s Legislative Caucus increases the leadership skills and potential of Wyoming women through events, training and resources. Wyoming has a rich legacy of women in leadership, and the Wyoming Women’s Legislative Caucus is hoping to capitalize on that legacy by working together to encourage more Wyoming women to run for office through candidate development and speaking engagements to share their own experiences. To strengthen women’s leadership and familiarize women with Wyoming government’s legislative and executive branches, the Caucus hosts Leap into Leadership annually in conjunction with the legislative session.

Our Documentary Film: Don’t Fence Me In

In 2008 filmmakers Bonnie Kreps and Charlie Craighead completed a film project chronicling the lives of women across Wyoming. 13 women and girls shared their stories of sustaining families, ranches, industries and communities, and of living in and on the broad Wyoming landscape.

Since then, the film has been re-released with a new bonus track, which includes the stories of even more women from Wyoming’s diverse and dynamic communities. Copies of the new DVD are available through Valley Bookstore in Jackson, 307.733.4533, or by email at Civic and nonprofit organizations can contact The Equipoise Fund directly at
