While this image was chosen for its colourful depiction of a famous historic Christmas, ArchSoc finds it troubling that no (or at least few) women were involved in Mawson’s Antarctic Expedition. We acknowledge that this is due to a lack of social and political rights for women, and remain committed to redressing this inequality.
