Antarctica’s challenges are greater than just the ice. Poorly-fitted clothing which makes fieldwork more difficult; male colleagues who are reluctant to take on cooking and cleaning tasks; and a research vessel nicknamed ‘The Love Boat’ due to the expectation of on-board hook-ups. According to a study published earlier this year by researchers at the University of Tasmania (UTAS), these are just some of the barriers facing women who work in Antarctic research.
