International Women's Day, March 8, 2019

Yesterday was so much fun! Polar Explorer Ann Bancroft (standing behind me) was the speaker at the annual Women's Day program at St. Thomas University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Students, staff, and community (me!) volunteers representing the Luann Dummer Center for Women on campus are gathered above to celebrate the day. Ann's address that featured videos and photos of her explorations was well-received by a full audience. Not only an intrepid explorer, Ann Bancroft is an environmentalist, writer and teacher. "No Horizon is So Far" is the book of Liv Arnesen and Ann's extraordinary journey across Antarctica. Buy the book; it's an inspiring read!!
