COWGIRLS ARE FOREVER

DONATE NOW

Cowgirls Are Forever
is the first feature-length documentary to illustrate the evolution of the cowgirl, and to chronicle how her spirit and accomplishments have impacted contemporary American culture from fashion to feminism, mustangs to music.  As Americans continue to re-examine the history of the West and its influence on society, the cowgirl has emerged as a role model for millions. She’s a potent archetype of strength, courage, wisdom, passion and perseverance. The bold cowgirl follows her heart, “saddles her own horse” and isn’t afraid to buck the norm. Her story is as much a part of the fabric of American history as Norman Rockwell, Andrew Carnegie, and Jessie James.  Today, the cowgirl continues to blaze new trails in all aspects American life. Cowgirls Are Forever honors her powerful legacy, keeping alive a rich American story that has yet to be told in a landmark film.
