To celebrate Women’s History Month (and also in acknowledgement to the recent international women’s day), we’ve created an infographic to share the amazing stories of more than 30 women adventurers from the past 250 years.
These female explorers, athletes, scientists and writers are a diverse bunch. They range from a grandmother-of-11 who was the first woman to hike the Appalachian Trail to a teenage acrobat who shot to fame as a human cannonball.
It’s been fascinating to find out more about these courageous, pioneering women - many of them now largely forgotten. We hope you’ll find their stories as inspirational as we have.
