I was teaching photography at Prescott College in Arizona when I met 19-year-old Julie, the daughter of renowned wildlife artist Grant Hagen. She was my student and advisee, and a cowpunchin’ pardner to my wife Kathie and me, when we were horseback help for rancher friends in the area. We three remain close friends to this day.

When it comes to women in politics, Western women have always led the way. They did so back in 1916, even before all women had the vote, and in the last national election that saw California’s Nancy Pelosi become the first female Speaker of the House.
While currently more women are present in Congress than ever before, and women outnumber men in the country, they still occupy only 16 percent of Congress. As headlines often declare, “Progress of women in D.C. has been slow.”
