“Widening the Boundaries”
May 22-25, 2020
The Society of Woman Geographers was founded in 1925 by four exceptional women: Marguerite Harrison, Blair Niles, Gertrude Shelby, and Gertrude Emerson Sen. These recognized explorers wanted to bring together women who shared ambitions and interest in exploration and achievement, exchange knowledge derived from work, and encourage women pursuing geographical exploration and research.
SWG members have widened the boundaries of activities acceptable for women, expanded the boundaries of exploration, and expanded the boundaries of research. We have been to outer space, to the ocean floors, the tops of mountains, and to the Poles of the earth. Join us for inspiring weekend of camaraderie, outstanding presentations, and pre- and post-tours of sites off the beaten path as we explore the theme “Widening the Boundaries” in Washington, DC.
