“Oh, You Cowgirl!” is an in-depth documentary film about the early 20th century cowgirls; the unsung heroes of the west. It is an honest-to-goodness cowgirl story which also reveals the truth about the legend and mystery of Prairie Rose Henderson. The film focuses upon the spirit and heart of the cowgirls of the wild west shows and rodeos – all champions; some coming from ranches in the west, some entertainers from the east, many giving up everything to do more than they “had a right to do.” The impact these inspiring, courageous women had on history, and the significance of their invaluable contribution to our western heritage, has been overlooked for nearly one hundred years. It’s high time their strength and character were brought into the light.
