Celebrating The 100th Anniversary Together!
On August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was officially ratified, enshrining most women in America with the right to vote. In 2020 we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the women's right to vote with a yearlong statewide celebration and commemoration.
Idaho Women in Leadership and the Idaho State Historical Society and are leading this initiative by convening organizations throughout the state to honor Idaho's early role in the women's suffrage movement and shape the future of women's leadership in Idaho.
Through our collective efforts, we will recognize and celebrate the influence of women in Idaho over the past 100 years and their contributions to the political, cultural, economic, academic, social, and civic fields. We will create a framework that will allow our partners and the public to highlight notable women in the movement throughout Idaho’s past and present.
The Idaho Women 100 Committee has begun planning the 100th-anniversary celebration of this momentous event. Our goals are to create legacy projects to live on for future generations through art, awards, collections, exhibits, and more. We will conduct research, host women’s leadership trainings, get out the vote and other events throughout the state. Through these efforts, we will work to shape the future of women’s leadership in Idaho by advancing shared leadership in politics, business, and education.
Some of the special events will include regional oral history workshops, a traveling exhibit, regional lectures and presentations, and many more. Let’s create events, presentations, and programs that reach all corners of the state!
