‘Numbered’ Book Goes Back In Time For A Look At Idaho's Prison For Women
White women in Idaho won the right to vote 100 years ago this year. In commemoration, the Idaho State Historical Society and the Old Penitentiary in Boise teamed up on an interesting project.
Their new book, entitled “Numbered: Inside Idaho's Prison for Women” takes a closer look at the 216 women imprisoned at the Idaho Penitentiary between the years of 1887 and 1968. Co-editor Amber Beierle and co-author Anna Webb join Idaho Matters to talk about the project.
