First Fridays: Bold Women in Montana History
12:00 PM
Butte-Silver Bow Public Library
Description:
Our First Fridays series continues on May 3 at noon with guest speaker Beth Judy.  Judy will inform us about strong women in history.

What does it mean to be bold? Beth Judy shares selected stories of the 15 women in her book, Bold Women in Montana History, to see how some of our Montana foremothers harnessed their own boldness. These women overcame challenges, thought outside the box, adventured, nurtured, built community, and fought. Their stories can inspire and lead us in thinking about our challenges today. These women include Blackfeet warrior Running Eagle; African American homesteader and army cook Annie Morgan; Crow grandmother, author, and culture keeper Pretty Shield; Jeannette Rankin; Butte’s Women’s Protective Union; actress Myrna Loy; rodeo stars Alice & Marge Greenough; Montana state librarian Alma Jacobs; modern artist and rancher Isabelle Johnson; writers Belle and Frieda Fligelman; and accountant and activist Elouise Cobell.

This lecture brought to you in part with a grant from Humanities Montana.
