Gals Against Smog and Pollution: Montana Women Take on Polluters

In Spring 2020, the students in Professor Leif Fredrickson’s HSTA375: Doing Local History: Missoula course helped create a digital exhibit that examined Gals Against Smog and Pollution (GASP), a women-led local environmental group that battled for clean air in western Montana in the late 1960s. To complete this project, students did background research and used oral histories and images from the Mansfield Library and also did their own oral histories (that are housed in the Mansfield Archives). This project was supported through a grant with Women’s Voice for the Earth. Explore the digital exhibit, which is hosted on the website of the Women’s Reproductive History Alliance
