Want to meet other women who crave the traveler's life? The International Society of Women Geographers was founded in 1925 as a place for female explorers to exchange ideas and stories of their travels. Over the years, many influential women in science and exploration have been members. They also give fellowships to women doing geographically based research around the globe. Perhaps the funding for your next photo project could come from ISWG!
Here's one for the ladies... The Society of Women Geographers is a membership society for women who consider themselves explorers. Here's a bit about their history, as told on their website:

"Four exceptional women founded SWG in 1925. Marguerite Harrison, Blair Niles, Gertrude Shelby, and Gertrude Emerson Sen– all recognized explorers – created a group to bring together women who shared ambitions and interests in exploration and achievement. No women’s organization then existed to share experiences, exchange knowledge derived from field work, and encourage women pursuing geographical exploration and research. In naming their organization the Society of Woman Geographers, the founders intended the word “geographer” in its broadest sense.

In the Society’s early years, there were still many unknown places and populations to be visited and studied, and Society members were in the vanguard of courageous explorers. Air transportation was just beginning when one of the first SWG members, Amelia Earhart, made her solo flight across the Atlantic. Margaret Mead pioneered much of modern anthropology. (Of SWG, Mead said: “This is my gang!”) Mary Douglas Leakey helped discover the earliest humans at Olduvai Gorge in Africa."
