“Cowgirl is an attitude, really.
A pioneer spirit, a special American brand of courage.
The cowgirl faces life head on, lives by her own lights, and makes no excuses.
Cowgirls take stands. They speak up. They defend the things they hold dear.
A cowgirl might be a rancher, or a barrel racer, or a bull-rider, or an actress.
But she’s just as likely to be a checker at the local Winn Dixie, a full-time mother,
a banker, an attorney, or an astronaut.”
(Dale Evans, 1992)
