Women Who Travel – International Women’s Day – Condé Nast Traveler

March 10, 2017 Business News No Comments Email Email

Condé Nast Traveler celebrates International Women’s Day with a package about women who are fearless, committed, and powerful.

It started as a story about women helping women—a group of 20 that included feminist icon Gloria Steinem, fellow activist and longtime collaborator Amy Richards, and Traveler editor-in-chief Pilar Guzmán, who met in Zambia on a mission of female empowerment. Then came the Women’s March, some 4 million voices strong around the world. We thought there was something more here than individual moments: This was a conversation that had to happen, and needed to continue. Now, as we enter Women’s History Month, we get loud and proud, celebrating the women who reach for the glass ceiling, even when it’s at 35,000 feet. There are the pioneering Amelia Earharts of the industry; the adventure women and solo travelers; and the #nastywomen in our network who refuse to stay home.

The special report includes 13 Women Who Made Travel History;  From Stewardess to Flight Attendant: 80 Years of Sophistication and Sexism; Women Are Becoming More Adventurous Travelers—and Doing It Alone

We’ve also interviewed eight women who are citizens of the world and best-in-class activists.

For Sophia Bush, actress and human rights activist, it’s all about fighting for new experiences. For Naomi Campbell, one of the world’s original supermodels, it’s all about truly being at home in the world. For Priyanka Chopra, star of Quantico, Baywatch, and nearly 50 Bollywood films, it’s all about expanding your horizons, literally.

For Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist and Difficult Women, it’s all about saying “yes.” For Padma Lakshmi, Top Chef producer and judge, it’s all about learning from other people. For Traveler editor-in-chief Pilar Guzmán, it’s all about celebrating our differences. For Niki Caro, Kiwi writer and the director of The Zookeeper’s Wife, it’s all about leaving home, especially when you’re from the edge of the world. For Diksha Basu, actress and author of the upcoming novel The Windfall, it’s about living multiple lives within this one.
