several analyses found.S. with nearly every western state or territory enfranchising women long before women won the right to vote in eastern states Is the West still a land of opportunity for women Id say its more a land of contradictions Weve got women in public offices and CEO suites throughout the region But here in the West women continue to lag behind men in too many areas to declare the "Woman Problem" solved Virginia Scharff is distinguished professor of history at the University of New Mexico The chance to be a landowner Vicki L Ruiz Under colonial Spain and newly independent Mexico married women living in the borderlands of what is now the American Southwest had certain legal advantages not afforded their European-American peers Under English common law women when they married became feme covert (effectively dead in the eyes of the legal system) and thus unable to own property separately from their husbands Conversely Spanish-Mexican women retained control of their land after marriage and held one-half interest in the community property they shared with their spouses As I tell my students imagine you are a woman on the Illinois prairie the only child of a prosperous farmer Your parents die and you inherit the family homestead You marry raise crops and rear several children But if your husband has a mind to sell the farm and travel west you cannot stop the sale and up on the buckboard you go However if you grew up near Albuquerque your husband could not sell the property you had brought to the marriage thus giving you significant leverage in household decisions So you might not end up on that buckboard after all There were numerous landed women of note in the West For example María Rita Valdez operated Rancho Rodeo de las Aguas now better known as a center of affluence and glamour: Beverly Hills (Rodeo Drive takes its name from Rancho Rodeo) After the US-Mexican War the del Valle family of Southern California held on to Rancho Camulos and when Ygnacio the patriarch died his widow Isabel and daughter Josefa successfully took over the ranchs operations Other successful entrepreneurs and property holders who defended their interests in court when necessary included San Franciscos Juana Briones Santa Fes Gertrudis Barceló San Antonio-born María del Carmen Calvillo and Phoenixs Trinidad Escalante Swilling In a frontier environment they utilized the legal system to their advantage as women unafraid to exert their own authority Vicki L Ruiz is distinguished professor of history and Chicano/Latino studies at the University of California Irvine A fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and president-elect of the American Historical Association she is the author of From Out of the Shadows: Mexican Women in Twentieth-Century America Writerly inspiration Cathryn Halverson The West gave women special opportunities as authors Aspiring writers saw literary "material" in the stuff of their daily lives in frontier rural and urban western spaces They shaped that material into letters journals sketches essays and stories for eastern magazines and pressesand received popular acclaim For readers outside the West the settings these women described were exotic: California gold camps and desert outposts northwestern logging and mining communities Rocky Mountain and Great Plains homesteads Elinore Pruitt Stewart writing from Wyoming in 1913 placed a series of letters about her homesteading experience in the prestigious Atlantic Monthly She reported on the letters of thanks she received from appreciative readers like the elderly woman who told her "the Letters satisfied her every wish She said she had only to shut her eyes to see it all to smell the pines and the sage" Through its association with romantic national mythologies of sublime landscape and heroic endeavor an ordinary womans life on a ranch in Wyoming seemed to mean moreand to reveal morethan one on a farm in Wisconsin or Connecticut Yet women writers were just as likely to revise as support these mythologies which centered on male endeavor and they frequently portrayed western sites as not wild and liberating but provincial and claustrophobic The Story of Mary MacLane for example one of the most notorious books of 1902 depicted the 19-year-old authors desperation to escape her middle-class home in the copper boomtown of Butte: "Can I be possessed of a peculiar rare genius" she demands "and yet drag my life out in obscurity in this uncouth warped Montana town" Nevertheless the city MacLane denounced was key to her literary success: Readers would have been far less intrigued by the thoughts and experience of a girl hailing from a more familiar place Cathryn Halverson is an associate professor of American studies at the University of Copenhagen Denmark She is the author most recently of Playing House in the American West: Western Womens Life Narratives It depends on which women and where Laura Woodworth-Ney The answer depends on which women and the geography of their circumstances During the post-Civil War period in the American West (1865-1910) middle-class and upper-class white women often did enjoy more flexibility and more freedomto travel to own land in their name to exercise control over their children Minority womenparticularly Chinese and Native Americandid not experience greater freedoms For these groups the idea of an American "West" was meaningless For Chinese women who immigrated during the late-19th century to work in the laundries saloons and grimy inns of mining camps scattered throughout California and the Rocky Mountain interior the West was not west at all but rather east and it was often not a voyage of choice Impoverished families in China were encouraged to sell their daughters who were shipped to San Francisco held in "pens" and taken to mining camps Even though slavery had been outlawed after the Civil War the isolation of these campsin places like Warrens Idahomeant that slavery existed in fact if not in law For the Wests native women of the late-19th and early-20th centuries the American West represented a battleground of culture conquest and hunger Non-Indian settlement destroyed the food sources and lifeways for the tribes of the western United States while US government policy forced them onto federally managed reservations With their peoples ravaged by disease and forced assimilation many tribal women faced crippling poverty and cultural genocide as the 20th century dawned The survival and success of tribes in 21st-century America is due to the ability of these native women to hold their families together during the era of the "American West" Laura Woodworth-Ney is provost and vice president for academic affairs at Idaho State University Formerly the chair of the department of history she has published more than 30 articles and books on topics in history humanities and higher education She is currently at work on a history of women and irrigation settlement in the American West Mobilitybut not necessarily upward Judy Tzu-Chun Wu When we talk about "the American West" and the women who made it their home what do we really mean Often the term conjures images of those who migrated east to west specifically from the East Coast of the United States However the region understood as the "West" was home to indigenous and Mexican women who lived here before Anglo-American and African-American settlers Some of these women who already resided in the West experienced forced physical cultural economic and political dislocation to make space for "pioneers" Women also migrated from the "East" meaning Asia and other parts of the Eastern hemisphere They also came "North" and "South" within the western hemisphere Asking about distinct opportunities for women in the West also assumes that these opportunities didnt exist elsewhere This is a long-standing belief in US society that the West epitomizes the American dream and the basis of American identity This region of presumably "free land" provided opportunities for economic mobility and self-reinvention But not all women could participate in these opportunities State policies throughout much of the Western states denied Asians the right to own land as well as interracially marry Furthermore some women were forced to migrate to work in the sex industry one of the few jobs allocated for women in the male-dominated western "frontier" Certainly many people including women relocated to the West based on the belief that opportunity awaited them For example Margaret Chung the subject of a biography I wrote became the first American-born Chinese female physician Her mother had been sold into servitude and prostitution and her father struggled to make ends meet through most of their familys lives However Margaret found religious and educational allies to obtain a medical education During World War II she served as an adopted "mother" to over 1000 "sons"Anglo-American soldiers entertainers and politicians On the surface this appears to be a success story However Chungs economic and social rise also depended upon her manipulation of her identity including strategically performing a projected role of foreign womanhood At times despite her status as a professional woman Chung played the role of an Oriental mammy Her story like others of women in the West was not a simple one of upward mobility Judy Tzu-Chun Wu is a professor of Asian American studies and history at the University of California Irvine She is the author of Dr Mom Chung of the Fair-Haired Bastards: The Life of a Wartime Celebrity and Radicals on the Road: Internationalism Orientalism and Feminism during the Vietnam Era She is working with Gwendolyn Mink on a political biography of Patsy Takemoto Mink the first woman of color to be elected congressional representative The opportunity to learn from one another Jane Simonsen The American West presented opportunities for some 19th-century Anglo-American women to cultivate a stronger sense of authority by positioning their domestic work as part of nation-building Middle-class white women reformers interested in promoting Native American assimilation for example worked to define the well-kept single-family homeand the woman at its centeras a key marker of civilization Their widely recognized power as moral guardians of the home justified their action and work outside of the narrow domestic realm and these reformers carved out a niche for themselves among the politicians scientists and field workers who sought to "civilize" the western tribes in the latter half of the 19th century Yet working among Native Americans in western locations from the Nez Perce in northern Idaho to the Cahuilla of Southern California gave these women the opportunity to measure themselves against their indigenous counterpartsand at least some found their own civilization lacking Close contact with indigenous women sometimes held up a harsh mirror to "civilized" society which devalued the very work these women sought to promote For their part indigenous women took advantage of new resources on their reservations when they could and were cannily selective in what they chose to adopt of the lessons and models of conduct offered by Anglo reformers The reservation system land allotment and reform movements disrupted many social ties and work patterns Still resourceful indigenous women sought opportunities to earn seasonal income own property and provide health care to their families By maintaining some familiar forms of work such as farming foraging and needlework women helped to mitigate new economic realities on the reservation Remaining at the margins of the new economy indigenous women used new trade opportunities to maintain some of the very systems that reformers had hoped to destroy Jane Simonsen is associate professor of history and womens and gender studies at Augustana College in Rock Island Illinois She is the author of Making Home Work: Domesticity and Native American Assimilation in the American West 1860-1919 Room to invent new identities Maria Raquel Casas On December 23 1868 a Native American woman died in Los Angeles and Anglo-Americans paid no attention to her passage Within the new racial and social order established by Americans after the Mexican American war Victoria Bartolomea Comicrabit was an Indian but what 19th-century Americans failed to recognize was that this woman had survived two colonization efforts and lived a uniquely Californian life Born in 1808 Victoria was a member of the San Gabriel people and fully hispanicized by the Spanish friars to the point that she and her "Indian" husband Pablo Maria were given mission lands once they married and became fully Catholic As a property owner and hispanicized woman Victoria interacted and was socially accepted by the other local elite Californio families When her husband died she inherited all the lands granted to the couple If she had remained a widow Victoria would have continued to work her lands take care of her four children and be a respected member of her community She was an "Indian" but in the Spanish colonial system race was more fluid Victoria however did not remain a widow and in September 1836 she married the Scottish trader Hugo Reid who eventually squandered Victorias lands After his death Victoria was left destitute treated as "just another Indian" As Victoria Reids story shows womens lives in the American West have to be understood through complicated categories of race class religion marriage and legal standing that did not remain static during the 19th century If we see womens contributions to settling the West as nothing more than dependent mates to men we fail to see the complex woman that Victoria represents Maria Raquel Casas is an associate professor at the University of Nevada Las Vegas and author of
