Singer, songwriter Carole King and ‘Educated’ author Tara Westover among influential Idaho women

No list of incredible Idaho women is complete without a discussion of Sacagawea, the Shoshone teen who helped guide the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1805.

Technically, this list doesn’t include Sacagawea. It focuses on Idaho women alive between 1920 and 2020, as the USA TODAY Network marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment when women in the U.S. gained the legal right to vote. In commemoration, the USA TODAY Network is naming 10 American women from all 50 states and the District of Columbia who’ve made significant contributions to their respective states and country as Women of the Century.

Even without Sacagawea, the list is rich with Idaho women who also trod adventurous paths. The 10 who made the list are American women with a record of outstanding achievement in arts and literature, business, civil rights, education, entertainment, law, media, nonprofits and philanthropy, politics, science and medicine

In the event that we drill down to the vast majority’s bedrock inspiration around here, I feel that we find at the center they want to act naturally dependent. They need to settle on the choices that decide their destiny throughout everyday life.

Others are incorrect, You are
