When Women Reached the Ice

In 1969, Lois M. Jones and her science team made history as the first all-female research team to work for the US Antarctic Program. They were studying the erosion of rocks in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, the subject of Jones’s doctoral thesis the previous year. They made history as the first all-female science team on the continent and the first women to reach the South Pole, paving the way for countless women to follow in their footsteps.
