The footage was rebroadcasted on March 31 for an online audience. Stuntz themes her talk around the major 6 flags of Texas and focuses on the particular experiences of women in the Panhandle. Using newspapers and memories for her research, Stuntz describes a number of unique experiences that women faced in the tough, isolating frontier space.
