    This famous photo was in June 1985, “Afghan Girl” issue of National Geographic. It featured photographer Steve McCurry’s cover photo of a thirteen-year-old Afghan girl in a Pakistani refugee camp. McCurry never learned her name, but in 2002 National Geographic tried to find her again. Miraculously, she was discovered living in the mountains of Afghanistan with her husband and three daughters. Her name turned to be Sharbat Gula.

In 1925, the National Geographic Society didn't admit women, so Harriet Chalmers Adams, adventurer and female badass, founded the Society of Woman Geographers. She was regarded as the foremost woman explorer of her time, traveling to Latin American, eventually writing about her travels for National Geographic magazine. She proved that women had the same moxie, the same adventurous spirit, and the same fortitude to see the world as any man!
