[Extract] Women scientists were prohibited from working in Antarctica until Soviet geologist Maria Klenova began her research there in 1956. Despite their contributions since, women comprise only 11% of medal winners from the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research. Our aim is to raise the profile of influential female researchers to inspire the roughly 60% of early-career polar scientists who are women.
