Celebrate a hundred years of Women’s Suffrage when the Blaine County Historical Museum presents Idaho Day 2020.

The museum will be open from noon to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, at 218 N. Main St. in Hailey.

It will have a special display focusing on Blaine County’s history in the Women’s Suffrage movement.

There are numerous events being held around the state during 2020 organized by Idaho Women in Leadership and the Idaho State Historical Society to commemorate the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The Idaho Women 100 Celebration will include exhibits on Idaho’s “First, First Family” and “Miss Fletcher’s Botany Expedition” in the Idaho State Capitol.

A Bell Ringing and Celebration of Idaho Women’s Day will be held at noon Friday, March 13, at Ketchum Town Square. The celebration will acknowledge the influence, impact and importance of women in Idaho’s past, present and future.

Idaho was the fourth state in the country to give most women in the state the right to vote. Its did so on Nov. 3, 1896—about 25 years before the 19th amendment was ratified on Aug. 18, 1920. Only Wyoming, Utah and Colorado gave women the right to vote earlier.
