How to Beat Misogyny in Polar Exploration, Living 3 years on Antarctica & How Anyone Can Get to the South Pole

Felicity Aston


"Is was Misogyny; I always thought people didn't believe in me"

Felicity Anston, a resilient polar explorer, author, and member of the Explorers Club, TV host (just to name a few), defied societal norms and battled misogyny and sexism throughout her journey to the poles. But SHE WALKS the TALK. Not only did she skied aross Antarctica, and reached the North Pole, but she spent an 3 consecutive years in an Antarctic Research Station, confronting challenges that mirrored the intensity of a horror movie.

Undeterred by the prevailing belief that polar expeditions were solely for men, Felicity became a passionate advocate for gender equality in the field, determined to shatter the myth and pave the way for more women to embrace the challenges of polar exploration.
