Abstract

Invisibility may be one of the greatest challenges women face. One of the great flaws in the writing of U.S. history has been the omission of the role or presence of women from the written record-women are invisible. Fortunately, three women authors (i.e., Willa Cather (1873-1947), Bess Streeter Aldrich (1881-1954) and Mari Sandoz (1896-1966)) of Nebraska have chronicled settlement stories in their writings. They have preserved, through their writings, the presence, work, and contributions of women during the homesteading, pioneer, and early settlement years in Nebraska. Their efforts are a fine antidote to women's invisibility. May you also write so that you help reduce the invisibility of women leaders.
