Cowgirls went up the trail, down the trail, on the trail, but most importantly, they went beyond the trail. In honor of Women’s History Month, join us as Joyce Gibson Roach traces the history of the cowgirl—both the real deal and the Wild West icon. You’ll learn how these women on horseback carved out roles for themselves separate from their cowboy counterparts and represented a different side of the American West to the world.

Joyce Gibson Roach is a retired TCU adjunct English professor, author of non-fiction books, short fiction and juvenile fiction, a folklorist, grassroots historian, rancher and naturalist. She is a lifetime member and Fellow of Texas State Historical Association and of Texas Folklore Society, a member of Texas Institute of Letters, Philosophical Society of Texas, lifetime member of West Texas Historical Association and of Horned Lizard Conservation Society of which she is a past national president, and Honoree in the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame and Museum.
