One of our favorite women in history said it best:
Women are like tea bags. You never know how strong they are until they get into hot water.—Eleanor Roosevelt
And, we all know that women are strong as hell—especially women in travel. Despite still facing so much economic and social inequality worldwide, women still travel the world and are making a huge impact as students, volunteers, teachers, and adventurers abroad. This Ebook is inspired by the women in travel who came before us and made to inspire future young women to travel far, wide, and deep.

As part of GoAbroad’s mission to make travel more accessible, support women who travel the world, and provide the best and most comprehensive resources for meaningful travelers, our writers share their words of wisdom—from the inspiring women who travel and from men who travel with women.
Whether the people in your life are unsupportive of your travel goals or you have concerns for your safety as a woman traveling solo, our writers have a ton of experience with handling overbearing families and that underlying fear we live with in the pit of our stomachs. The great news is none of this has to deter women who want to travel the world. You’ll learn your strength once you get out of your comfort zone and into a little hot water.
And for any men looking to be a better support system for the women in their lives who travel, we’ve got you covered, too. Not only can you be a better ally to the women you travel with, but we’ve got tips for how you can be upstanding men in the movement, champion equality, and support women worldwide.
