This is a show about Pioneers. Since the first colonists, Americans have had “itchy feet”. The continued search for a better life has had women & men from all over the world write US history with their footprints.
What women wore on their life journeys was a matter of status, location, information, access, cost, and function. Technology, communication, innovation, and world events directly affected choices and decisions.
When you learn about the women presented here, see if you can make the connections between them and your own history as it was they that walked ahead of us to the West.
Dedicated to our mothers, a few of whom were in the show!
