The Texas Ranch Sisterhood: Portraits of Women Working in the Land
March 6 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Joins us for Women’s History Month as Alyssa Banta talks about her book, The Texas Ranch Sisterhood: Portraits of Women Working in the Land. Most think of ranchers as exclusively men, but Banta’s photographs tell a different story. She will present the experiences of multiple women ranchers throughout Texas. To truly understand ranch work, Banta spent more than a year with these women, living in their homes and working with them in the field. This presentation will offer a unique insight into women ranchers across the Lone Star State.
