This paper is primarily a synopsis of a panel presen- tation given during a symposium entitled “Women as Change Agents in the World’s Rangelands,” held at the 66th Annual Meeting of the Society for Range Management in Oklahoma City.i My purpose is to consider the role that women, through their effort and exam- ple, are playing in shaping the changing landscape of range management in the western United States. As a symposium co-organizer, I invited four women ranchers to participate in this panel because they are widely recognized as successful leaders of land-management collaborations in Arizona, Ida- ho, Oregon, and Nevada.DOI: 10.2458/azu_rangelands_v35i6_riper
