Now is the time to celebrate the role of women in the Polar Regions.
This website aims to bring more attention to the vital contributions of women in the understanding of the North, Arctic and Antarctic. The Women in the Arctic and Antarctic (WiAA) initiative promotes the work and voices of women and their contribution to both scientific and traditional Polar knowledge. As such the WiAA initiative (@arctic_in) was started by Danita Catherine Burke (@DanitaBurke1) to promote women in Polar studies, to highlight the topics and locations that women work and live in while researching, experiencing, and discussing the North and the Polar Regions, and to help bring attention to the wide range of resources available to facilitate current and future research.
