Arizona Humanities Lecture: Hellraising, Heroic and Hidden Women of the Old West

Sunday, March 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Although history tries to tell us ONLY men settled the Old West, that is shattered by Jana’s verbal tour through some of the amazing women who made all the difference.  Any woman who came West in the 1800s had to be full of grit and spit to survive and Jana has collected the stories of dozens of women who prove it.  Ever heard of Donaldina Cameron or Biddy Mason?  Sharlot Hall or Pearl Hart—Arizona’s infamous stagecoach robber?  Jana reveals the contributions of women like Lozen, the Apache warrior considered the “”Joan of Arc”” of her people, and Terrisita, the most famous Mexican woman in the nation at the turn of the century.  Meeting these women, you will never think of the Old West the same again!Jana Bommersbach is one of Arizona’s most honored and respected journalists.  She has won accolades in every facet of her career—investigative reporter, magazine columnist, television commentator and author of nationally acclaimed books.  She currently writes for True West magazine, digging up the true stories behind the popular myths, with an emphasis on Arizona’s real history and women of the Old West.  Her insight, knowledge and wit produce exuberant, riveting speeches that always garner rave reviews.
