PolarLeader - Frequently asked questions
How come there are no women in PolarLeader?
There are women in this story but they were minor characters and we found them poorly portrayed and acted. The main reason is the story took place at the turn of the 19th century and women were not well represented in this patriarchal society. This is part of the lesson of this story and open to discussion. What we now know is that there were some exceptional women explorers in that time period. To my mind perhaps the greatest explorer of the early 19th century was Alexandra David Néel.
