Sally Fox was one determined individual. She made a huge impact on everyone, including the way society views women now. Sally even has an Innovation Lives Program for students to participate in. They can learn about the different kinds of cotton. Not only does she have a program now, she is usually the instructor and loves to teach. She informs young and old people with her love for cotton and to spin. Not a lot of people spin anymore these days so a spinning class would be very helpful to most people.
In the Texas Monthly Magazine, they mention how farmers were not supportive in California because this colored cotton could harm their white cotton. The cotton did better in California but Texans were the only ones who understood her, she mentions. This was a hard decision to make but she ended up moving to Texas. This was a good enough environment for Sally. She also needed a good support group and had that there. The people in Texas even wanted her to have a local industry established. A local farmer in Texas kindly says, “If she can find the market, we can grow the cotton” (Reppel).
