Winter Lecture Series – November 8

Cowgirls: Women of the Wild West

Cowgirls appeared on the American frontier in the mid-1800s.  During a time when women were expected to act ladylike, sew, serve tea in the parlor, and care for her husband and family, cowgirls lived on the fringes of society working stock alongside the cowboys and were determined and spirited pioneers.  Museum Supervisor Lynne Richardson will present stories and images of the early cowgirls of the American West who worked on ranches, performed in Wild West shows and competed in rodeos.
