Women in Adventure

A collective voice championing women in the outdoors

Women in Adventure is an independent research organisation working to increase participation, improve diversity and widen the accessibility of the outdoors for women. Driven by data, we believe change should be based on more than opinion, and represent the voice of as many women as possible.

Am I A Woman in Adventure?

Women‘ (noun): anyone who identifies as a woman, including individuals outside of the gender binaries.

Adventure‘ (noun): an undertaking involving unknown risks, usually an exciting or remarkable experience.

We are all individuals – how we experience and engage with the outdoors is unique to each of us. As a result, the opinions we form from this are often different.

Through our research, we want to represent the thoughts of as broad and diverse range of people as possible. There is no right and wrong – one belief is no more valid than another. If you are interested in what we are talking about, we want to hear from you! Whatever your background, experience of the outdoors, age or gender – your opinion is welcome.
