That is a good question. We thought about a good answer, but then we found this quote from Dale Evans, one of the most famous cowgirls in history. She says everything we want to say and more:

“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

We think that describes what it means to be a cowgirl pretty well. If you agree and are proud to be such a cowgirl or know one like Dale Evans describes, feel free to share this quote using the links below!
