Women and Water
Women and Water is a visually driven celebration of women who love nature, adventure, and water sports.
This inspiring collection combines breathtaking photography with powerful narratives from women who swim, surf, kayak, study glaciers, advocate for water conservation, carry forward their ancestral fishing traditions, and more. Collected by the team at She Explores, a media company and community that celebrates women in the outdoors, these first-person stories explore themes of independence, strength, healing, and self-discovery in nature. Helpful how-tos on everything from cold water swimming to taking underwater photos are interspersed throughout the book, making it easy for readers to get outside and get their feet wet. The result is a joyful tribute to the strength women exude in and on the water in a beautiful, chunky package that makes an empowering gift for teenage girls, new graduates, and outdoorsy women of all ages.
