In honor of Women’s History Month, here are five South African women whose remarkable work, achievements, and dreams are protecting, exploring, and making history!
1. Ness Knight, Adventurer
When filling out forms, South African-born Ness Knight finds herself forced to choose “Other” as her occupation, because “Explorer” never seems to be an option. As she puts it, she has made a career out of “hauling everything that I need to survive with me around some of the most remote corners of our planet, and telling the stories of those experiences.”
