THREE FORKS — Montana State Parks will host “Bold Women in Montana History” with Beth Judy at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at Missouri Headwaters State Park, 1585 Trident Road, Three Forks.
What does it mean to be bold? Author Beth Judy shares selected stories of the many 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 inspire and lead us in thinking about the challenges we face 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.
Bring your own chair and stay to enjoy a marshmallow roast follows the program.
