BOISE, Idaho — Boise City Hall debuted an exhibit celebrating women's suffrage Wednesday, for the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which recognized the right to vote for many women -- but not all.

The exhibit, led by Boise City Department of Arts and History, is titled "Standing Together: Women's Ongoing Fight for Equality," and is located in the downtown lobby at 150 N Capitol Blvd.

Through this traveling exhibit featuring hands-on activities, organizers hope to spread awareness about the history of the 19th Amendment and women's fight for equality.

"Standing Together: Women's Ongoing Fight for Equality" will be on display starting January 29, through October 1. The city will also host monthly open houses beginning at noon on the following dates:

  • February 19
  • March 25
  • April 8
  • May 13
  • June 10
  • July 15
