Polar Exposure

10 Women's Journey to the North Pole

By: Felicity Aston

It's time to hit the ice.

When British Explorer Felicity Aston put out an open call for women with little to no experience willing to brave the elements on an expedition to the North Pole, she was stunned to have over 1000 applicants. After narrowing it down to ten women from ten different countries—some of whom had never seen snow before—the team spent the next two years training for this unique opportunity. Set against a backdrop of Arctic pack ice that is thinner, newer, and less stable than ever before due to climate change—they face the realities of hungry polar bears, extreme temperatures, and the possibility that anything and everything could go wrong at any moment.
 
Aston beautifully weaves each woman’s account into the greater expedition narrative. Over 60 stunning photographs illustrate the journey, illuminating the breathtaking landscape along with the joy, pain, and determination of these ten women. Polar Exposure is a powerful celebration of the perseverance of women in science, sports, and exploration that sheds light on all that it takes to reach the top of the world.
