The Society of Woman Geographers was founded in 1925 by four exceptional women: Marguerite Harrison, Blair Niles, Gertrude Shelby, and Gertrude Emerson Sen. These recognized explorers wanted to bring together women who shared ambitions and interest in exploration and achievement, exchange knowledge derived from work, and encourage women pursuing geographical exploration and research. SWG members have widened the boundaries of activities acceptable for women, expanded the boundaries of exploration, and expanded the boundaries of research. We have been to outer space, to the ocean floors, the tops of mountains, and to the Poles of the earth.
Join us for inspiring weekend of camaraderie, outstanding presentations, and tours of sites off the beaten path as we explore the theme "Widening the Boundaries" at the Cosmos Club, National Geographic Society and SWG's Headquarters in Washington, DC.
Attached find the preliminary program and registration form. We look forward to seeing you in May.
