From the frontier days to the Wild West stars like Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane to outlaws such as Bonnie Parker and Patty Hearst gun-slinging women have been part of our culture for over a century. Whether a soldier, a pioneer, a radical activist, a hero or a villain women in real life and the cinema have been using guns to gain equal power within their often sexist movements.

Tonight is Earth Hour.
You can participate in a worldwide green movement tonight by simply turning off your power for one hour starting tonight at 8:30pm. The fourth annual Earth Hour will unite over 4,000 cities, 125 countries, and millions upon millions of people as we all take a moment to recognize our power to turn things off.
Major landmarks turning off their lights tonight include the Great Pyramids, the Empire State Building, St. Peter's Basilica, Sydney's Opera House, Mount Rushmore, the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Eiffel Tower, the Acroplis, and many, many more.
Do your part in this worldwide effort. Turn off your lights and light a candle or have some fun in the dark.
