MT Conversations - Bold Women in Montana History with Beth Judy

Sun Mar 24 2019, 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

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.

Beth Judy is the author of the young adult book Bold Women of Montana History and the host and producer of The Plant Detective, which airs on Montana Public Radio on Monday afternoons and Saturday evenings.
