Yes, she was Annie Oakley and I remember watching the Western Serial most afternoons on TV when i got home from school. She ran bad guys outta town and saved poor sodbusters from rapacious cattle ranchers, but in real life she was a very clever businesswoman who toured with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and built a personal fortune.

Annie Oakley was an exceptional shooter and smart businesswoman.

Yessiree, she was a mighty woman, the equal of any man with a rifle or in the boardroom and a fitting person to front our International Women’s Day article. You can read a little of her history in this Chicago Tribune story.

I thought Gail Davis was so hot when I was 10.
