Women in Antarctica

Celebrating 50 years of Exploration

Presented by the Byrd Center

Join us for a symposium that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first all-women research team in Antarctica.

Thursday & Friday, October 17 & 18, 2019

Led by Dr. Lois Jones, this team of four women from The Ohio State University made polar history when they went to Antarctica in 1969. The symposium will look at women’s past, present, and future in science, research, discovery, and leadership.
