This jam-packed deck of Knowledge Cards recounts the lives and daring exploits of 48 remarkable women from the 1600s to the present who chose the bold and exciting over the conventions of the day. Whether climbing mountains in full-length skirts, living with headhunters in Borneo, or heading expeditions across deserts and polar ice caps, these women led—indeed, some still lead—extraordinary lives filled with enough adventure to rival today’s action films. Who was instrumental in creating modern Iraq? Who surveyed and mapped the last unexplored region of North America? Who was a war correspondent during the 1879 Boer War? Take the journey to learn the answers and experience the courageous lives of those who said no to what should be and yes to what could.
