The travel industry often cites the statistic that women make over 75% of the travel decisions. We urge you, therefore, to use your decision-making power and your travel-related funds to go to places that are good for women, and consciously decide to avoid countries that are dangerous for or unfriendly to women.
Mto wa Mbu, Tanzania: River of Mosquitoes
In the circumstances where travel to unsafe-for-women places is necessary, we help you to be as safe as possible and encourage you to support the women there, women who may be in desperate or dangerous circumstances. We provide useful information to women travelers so that they can travel enjoyably, safely and use their economic clout to help women worldwide. What’s the use of having the power of the purse unless you do something with it?
We love to travel and we want to make it easier and better for you to travel, too. Our writers have the skinny on what it is really like to travel as women to countries, cities, villages and wilderness.
Lost Lake, Kenai Peninsula, Alaska
We travel solo and in groups, on formal tours and cruises, and follow our own itineraries and impulses. We also sometimes live overseas traveling in region. We climb mountains, explore some of the greatest cities on earth, snowshoe through wilderness, ride pedicabs and chill on the white sands of tropical beaches. We suggest cool things to do and dodgy areas to avoid. We describe what is really going on in the places you dream of traveling, not to scare you, but to prepare you; and let you decide what to do. Our metaphor is to rock climb with ropes.
This site is a place to exchange information, stay current and to provide suggestions. We offer not only the latest news but ways to help women all over the world. To provide the best and latest information, we need your help. We use a variety of sources to form the bases of our travel reviews and lists. Statistics that we use, however, are often a year or more old. Please provide us information about your travel so we can incorporate real world experiences with the data we gather. You can do this by clicking on Post a New Comment or Contact Us. We look forward to hearing from you.
