A female's role within the United States agrarian society has dramatically changed over recent decades. Women have been historically know to only be allowed to do "women's work" within the household. "American Gothic" by Grant Wood is prime example of this this sociological gender role portrayal. Fast forward to the new millennium: Women now drive tractors, combine and harvest crops, work with cattle along with doing the traditional "women's duties".
I am proud to be a good friend of one of these women. She not only is capable of gardening, canning and raising her two sons, but also farms along side her husband in North East Nebraska. The two work together; side by side, sharing the duties of what society has labeled to each of them. She is an inspiration to those women who believe that is essential for a woman to be able to complete all of the traditional duties in addition should be able to accomplish anything she sets her mind to. She has been a good friend to me in recent months and I am very thankful that I met her. She has inspired me to not only create, but as well to stretch my thinking as well in what a woman can accomplish if she sets her mind to it. This is such the life of a modern day farmwife.
