Join fellow IWCF members for a trip down memory lane. Explore the legacy of women’s clubs in Idaho and the advances made when women work together for a better future.
This presentation by Hannalorie Hine, State Historian, will explore the circumstances that allowed for the development of women’s clubs in the United States between the mid-to-late 1800s and early 1900s and the underlying ideologies and sentiments that spurred the Progressive Era. With this foundation, the presentation will then explore the emergence of women’s clubs in Idaho, the specific work of these clubs, and the impact that these clubs had in their communities. The work of club women at the turn of the century supported various facets of the community, including health, education, the arts and humanities, and political and civic engagement. The presentation will end with an exploration of how some of these clubs adapted and continued to serve their community well into the 20th and 21st centuries, and how, thanks to the record keeping of these organizations, we (with the help of historians) can learn from the women leaders of the past.
