Women in the Polar Regions
Meet women from across Europe and the Middle East who have become amazing role models. Women who have blazed the trail, broken boundaries and several records in their ground-breaking expeditions to both the North and South Poles.
World record breaking polar explorer Felicity Aston MBE, Author, Speaker, former Antarctic Scientist and the first woman to ski alone across Antarctica, will be hosting the event and give an account of Women in the Polar Regions, covering history through to the present day. Felicity will then be joined by members of the IceMaidens Antarctic Expedition and Women’s Euro-Arabian North Pole Expedition.
The IceMaidens all female team covered 1,700km using muscle-power alone, pulling sledges and battling temperatures of -50°C and wind speeds of over 60mph during their three-month journey. Unsupported, and with only two resupply points along the route. The team are serving members of the British Army or Army Reserve and followed in the footsteps of Felicity Aston’s record-breaking solo Antarctic crossing in 2012.
The Women’s Euro Arabian North Pole Expedition is an international team of women from across Europe and the Middle East, who (despite being predominantly novices) successfully skied together to the North Pole in April 2018. The expedition aimed to foster greater dialogue and understanding between women from Western and Arabian cultures, as well as to inspire all women to reach beyond the expectation of others and fulfil their own life ambitions.
The evening talk will take place in the Ondaatje Theatre of The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), London at 7pm on 21st June. Tickets cost £25 and £20 for RGS Members/Fellows and WAE Community (code required), group tickets available at £18pp for 6+ or £15pp for 12+.
