Tracy Public Library presents
Pioneer Women in Southwest Minnesota
Dr. Anita Talsma Gaul

Tracy Public Library
Pioneer Women are often portrayed in two stereotypical ways, as the steadfast farmwife (the “sunbonneted helpmate” as one historian termed it), or the overworked drudge. In contrast to these two stereotypes, however, women living in Southwest Minnesota in the late 19th and early 20th centuries were neither overworked nor supportive but invisible farmwives. Instead, women were integral parts of our rural communities and made important economic, cultural, and even political contributions.
This project was funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
