These women came to the Wild West/The Old West (whatever you wanna go with!) and smashed every expectation of womanhood. They became business oligarchs, they built entire communities and forged their own independence. It’s a one hell of a tale! But before we dive into it, lets super quickly knock out the basics: HOW DID THE WEST COME TO BE? Well, around the mid-1800s, there was a huge boom in the amount of land being developed in the Southwest. Most of this land was...
