How the West Was Won

ABOUT: We have a very romanticized view of our wild west past, and that culture pervades our self-image today. In truth, that history was lawless, sometimes violent, and certainly limited in opportunities for women. The winning of the west was through (sometimes) oppression and subjugation. Note that the figure is pointing her gun at you.
