Focus and Scope

This database is meant to correct an imbalance in the preserved historical data on women’s contribution to Idaho history. It is open to women connected to Idaho by birth, residence, work, or any other significant factor, whose positive efforts and accomplishments contributed significantly to quality of life in their community, the state or the world.  Basic database entries may be submitted online by librarians, educators, museum staff, Native American tribal authorities, women’s organizations associated with schools, or others with recognizable positions and credentials. Each entry must be accompanied by one to five published or otherwise publically available sources of information. Once an editorial board is in place, longer articles may be submitted for inclusion.
