I recently went on a filming expedition to Antartica for the global movement Homeward Bound. On my last few days I had the blinding flash of the obvious that I could be taking stills at the same time. Posted them the other day to Facebook in commemoration of International Women's Day and thought it timely to do my (seemingly) annual blog update.
Blog. How 2009.
Enjoy. And if you want to learn more about this astounding rememdy to our world's woes, head to https://homewardboundprojects.com.au/ to learn more.
ORIGINAL WORDS FROM THE FACEBOOK ALBUM:
"At the end of 2016, under the Homeward Bound banner, 77 female scientists, activists and impassioned world-changers packed into a boat bound for Antarctica. Leaving homes and loved ones behind — at a time of the year when all you wanna do is lounge by a pool somewhere warm — these questionably sane women got wise, frozen, flu-ridden, sea sick, frustrated and in love with one another — just to work together at bringing our planet and the species on it back from the brink of extinction.
At a point in human history where the free world is being "led" by the epitome of self interest and old white male privilege, these selfless women, bare knuckled and armed to the teeth, are truly modern day superheroes (as are the entire Homeward Bound team and the crew aboard The Ushuaia, including the world's hammiest Captain).
Simply put: these women are our world's last line of defence. When women fail, we all fail. When we steer our ship together, we surely can't go wrong.
Happy muthaflippin' #InternationalWomensDay."
