ice, ice, ladies
Ho hum, another scientific expedition to Antarctica … but this time the scientists are all women.
This is the largest all-female Antarctic expedition ever. The 76 astronomers, engineers, doctors, and physicists will spend 20 days at sea, conducting climate change research and participating in workshops and lectures.
The ultimate goal? A series of trips over the next decade that will knit women into a network of female climate leaders. That’s why the initiative’s slogan is “Mother Nature needs her daughters.”
