Buffalo Bill's Wild West brought an enormously successful performance spectacle to audiences throughout the United States and Europe between 1883 and 1916. Many talented and daring women performed alongside men in the Wild West shows, including tiny sharpshooter Annie Oakley. Annie and the other female performers represented the feminine side of an American tradition and brought a woman's touch to an otherwise uncivilized form of entertainment, but they also changed the way the world thought about women forever through the demonstration of their skills.
