Most of us know about Jane Goodall's groundbreaking work with African chimpanzees and Kathryn Sullivan's remarkable career as an astronaut. But few people are aware of the amazing achievements of women like Marguerite Harrison, world traveler and international spy in the 1920s; Sally Clark, a big-game hunter in the 1930s who donated her finds to science; and Jeanne Gurnee, a prominent speleologist in the 1950s and 1960s. They Made Their Mark covers the wide spectrum of women's curiosity in the fields of art, science, and culture, and chronicles the history of The Society of Woman Geographers—from its first meeting in 1925 to today.

They Made Their Mark tells the inspiring story of the Society's members—whether anthropologists, geologists, journalists, biologists, archaeologists, oceanographers, economists, diplomats, explorers, ecologists, or actual geographers—who have long met regularly to share their discoveries and adventures. With many rare photographs and illustrations from the Society's archives, it fills a vital gap in history by spotlighting the long overlooked accomplishments of some of the brightest, and bravest, women the world has ever known.
