Research

  • My research explores feminism in the rural American West focused on ranching women and cowgirls as they worked, traveled, and competed in the masculine sport of rodeo. I examine how ranching conditions in remote territories in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries altered existing ideals of gender roles resulting in new norms that combined ideals about women’s duties with their work, specifically masculine ranch-hand type labor, and feminine qualities to create the cowgirl.
