Abstract (summary)

This thesis is an examination of the lives of three women who make their living within the climbing/mountaineering media. It is a herstoriographical account of the development of their careers, which in all three cases parallels the development of their involvement within the climbing community. The first chapter examines the life of Gill Kent from England. It examines her life, her climbing career, and the history of the magazine that she bought and became the chief editor of. The second chapter examines the parallel development of the climbing and writing/editing career of Alison Osius. The third chapter looks at how Tami Knight went from art school to drawing cartoons for climbing and outdoor publications and how this was directly related to her increasing participation in the rock climbing community. These three chapters look at how these three women used their artwork---writing, cartooning, and editing---as a way to make a living and continue to be a part of the community they loved.
