The Indomitable Pancho Barnes

Greetings Cultural Weekly community!

Want to know about an outrageous woman who broke all the rules, a gal with a sense of humor and a sense of self? Take a break with Pancho Barnes, a fearless woman who:

  • escaped kidnappers by riding a horse across Mexico dressed as a man—
  • repeatedly said ‘No!” to authority, standing up for herself and others—
  • beat Amelia Earhart’s speed record— and much more.

My favorite quote from this interview:

“If you want to ask for a raise, Pancho Barnes is your spirit animal.”

Check out this week’s video with writer/musician April Wolfe talking about a bold adventuress who’ll capture your imagination and make you feel like kicking out the jams.

We’re in the middle of our crowdfunding campaign and though we’re doing well, we’ve hit a bit of a plateau– if you like our videos and would like to support the creation of more, we’d be most grateful if you donated this week!

And why not make your donation in the name of a woman who’s made a difference in your life? We’ll shout out your appreciation for her on social media. You’ll feel great, we’ll feel great, love all around.
