Women Across Alaska

Alaska’s National Parks and programs highlight a variety of women’s experiences, in telling all Americans stories, and helping illuminate Alaska’s past.

We invite you to learn more about women in our history – from living on the land and cultural changes, to the adventurers and fortune seekers, homesteaders and entrepreneurs, to those who suffered wartime hardships, the early scientists and conservationists, as well social and political activists and leaders. More to come!
