Hear from members of the first all-female team to cross Antarctica on muscle-power alone.

On 20 November 2017, the Ice Maidens – a team made up of women serving in the British Army or Army Reserve - set out on a 1,000-mile expedition across Antarctica. They completed the task 62 days later.

At this event, members of the Ice Maidens team will discuss what it was like to ski across Antarctica in temperatures of -40ºC, how they prepared for the task, and the significance of being the first all-female team to complete the challenge.
