If you’re ready to visit public places in person again, the Idaho Historical Society has a new exhibit opening Saturday, celebrating the “Trailblazing Women of Idaho.” The exhibition illustrates the stories of more than 100 Idaho women — including 20 living trailblazers.

These women have influenced Idaho’s past, present, and future through their courage, creativity, tenacity and values. Idaho Matters spoke Director of the Idaho State Museum Liz Hobson and Sarah Phillips, Museum Curator of Collections and Exhibitions.
