9780789002471: Women in the Antarctic (Haworth Innovations in Feminist Studies)

Whether you know nothing at all about the Antarctic or actually live and work there, you'll enjoy reading Women in the Antarctic. You'll read many fascinating firsthand accounts of the women whose courage and undaunted spirit of adventure made the Antarctic much less remote to the world's social and scientific communities.

The only book of its kind, Women in the Antarctic recounts the journeys of over 36 women--Navy personnel, research psychologists, scientists, members of the ASA (Antarctic Support Associates), and the American Women's Trans-Antarctic Expedition team members. You'll hear their voices and stories rise above the chilling howl of the Antarctic wind and come to understand the social and interpersonal impact such nontraditional female behavior had--and still has--on the world. Specifically, you'll read about:

  • women and risk-taking
  • women and nontraditional roles
  • the scientific and environmental expeditions of women
  • the Antarctic's social, environmental, and psychological impact on women
  • the firsthand accounts of female research scientists, Navy personnel civilian staff, and expedition members

    How much do you know about the Antarctic? Better yet, how much do you know about the female pioneers who braved the blizzards, subzero temperatures, and isolated conditions to bring back crucial geographical and scientific data? For the most part, their stories have remained untold, encased in ice--until now. Don't let the overcrowded conditions and fear of isolation turn you back. Read Women in the Antarctic and trek back in time with the women who chiseled a permanent historical niche in the coldest and most challenging region of the world.
