Woman Power: The Kapersky Commonwealth Expedition

Read of an interesting expedition today called the Kapersky Commonwealth Expedition - its a group of seven - originally eight - women from :
  • Brunei
  • Cyprus
  • India
  • Jamaica
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore and
  • The United Kingdom
Promoted as 5 Continents, 6 Faiths, 7 Languages, 8 Women, 1 daring ambition the expedition will see this group of women making a 900km journey from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.

Unfortunately the person selected from Ghana, Barbara Yarney, will not be able to participate because of ill health. Such a pity isn't it? Was so excited when I saw both Ghana and Jamaica listed as participating.

For more on the team members and the expedition in general follow the link here. I fully intend to follow this remarkable adventure that is so cool (no pun intended!) on so many levels. Curious to see what will happen.

Oh wow, this is interesting and would have been more so if there was someone from Africa. I wish them all the best.

Denise, interesting for me only because of the adventure. I don't think women have anything to prove. They are capable of quite anything (being equal with men).
