      The contributions of female explorers - Courtney Stephens

      View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/the-contributions-of-female-explorers-courtney-stephens During the Victorian Age, women were unlikely to become great explorers, but a few intelligent, gritty and brave women made major contributions to the study of previously little-understood territory. Courtney Stephens examines three women -- Marianne North, Mary Kingsley and Alexandra David-Néel -- who wouldn't take no for an answer (and shows why we should be grateful that they didn't). Lesson by Courtney Stephens, animation by Lizzi Akana.
