Westward the Women, Part II

This course will be a continuation of an offering during the summer session focused on women who carved a place for themselves in the 19th century American West. After a quick glance back at the Harvey Girls and Helen Hunt Jackson, attendees will be introduced to Molly Brown, Annie Oakley, Mary Colter, Pearl Hart, Martha Canary, and Belle Star. These notable women of the late 19th century defied the traditional, stereotypical role of women and moved into professions and areas of interest that stunned, shocked, and surprised their contemporaries. The lives of an architect, a Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show performer, a thief, a community activist, and a suffragette offer a fascinating glimpse of a rapidly changing world as America moved westward. PLEASE NOTE: Because the instructor will not be available at the beginning of the semester, the starting date for this course is delayed until September 26, 2017.
