IDAHO WOMEN 100

COURAGEOUS PAST | UNLIMITED FUTURE

Celebrating 100 Years of 

Women's Right to Vote

2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the women's right to vote and the beginning of the Idaho Women 100 Celebration. Idaho Women in Leadership and the Idaho State Historical Society are convening organizations for a statewide commemoration and celebration of this momentous event. We'll honor Idaho women's courageous past and bring together organizations to shape the unlimited future of women's leadership in Idaho. Through our collective nonpartisan efforts we will advance shared leadership in government, business, and education.

To accomplish this, we’re excited to work with many partners throughout the state to recognize the influence of women in Idaho over the past 100 years and their contributions to the political, cultural, economic, academic, social, and civic fields. 

Learn how you can be part of this exciting celebration below. Or check out our calendar for community events happening around the State of Idaho.

Idaho can be proud that its courageous past made it the 4th state in our country to give women the right to vote. On November 3, 1896, via Senate Joint Resolution 2, by a vote of nearly two to one in favor (12,126 to 6,282), Idaho changed history, long before the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed on August 18, 1920. Idaho, and the western states of Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, and Washington, led the country in the effort of women’s suffrage.
