Whakaraupō local and Antarctic geologist Margaret Bradshaw is one of New Zealand’s trail-blazing female scientists. Her first expedition to the ice was in 1975, 6 years after the ban on women working in Antarctica was lifted. Four years later in 1979, Bradshaw became the first woman to lead a deep field research party. A fascination for the rocks of the Dry Valleys has led to a long career in Antarctic geology that continues today.
