Speaker Dramatizes America's Pioneer Women

Dorene Ludwig uses first person vignettes to examine women’s roles in the workforce and at home in “Double Duty: The Working Women of America.” This free presentation takes place from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. on March 29 at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) High Plains District Office in Casper, Wyo. “Double Duty” features dramatic portrayals of women in various periods of history and will be followed by a discussion with the audience.

Ludwig is the artistic director of the American Living History Theater in Greybull. She has appeared in one-woman productions before audiences coast to coast. Ludwig travels widely and has served as a trainer for NASA, the United States Army, the National Park Service and various other institutions.

“Double Duty: The Working Women of America” is presented by the Wyoming Humanities Council as part of its humanities forum. The Council provides public humanities-based programs in partnership with local organizations and is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
