25 WOMEN EXPLORERS AND SCIENTISTS SHARE ADVENTURES, INSPIRATION, AND ADVICE
In these inspiring stories, two National Geographic Explorers, Clare Fieseler and Gabby Salazar, celebrate changemakers and outstanding women of diverse backgrounds, nationalities, and fields of study – many of whom are just beginning their game-changing work– by shining a light on the unique journeys and struggles that led to their incredible modern-day achievements. This book illuminates how women are making history today.
Inside these pages, readers will uncover the stories of amazing women who have done, and are still doing, incredible actions across the globe; women who have traveled the world to protect animals, tell stories, preserve history, and complete incredible athletic feats. They’ll learn about what it’s really like to be a woman in science – including the hardships many endure before ultimately forging their own paths in science and exploration.
