A new generation of women photojournalists are telling some of the most powerful and impactful stories of the last decade. As different as the places and the subjects they have covered, these women share the passion and commitment to storytelling that has come to define National Geographic. From the savannahs of Botswana to the war-torn streets of Libya and Afghanistan; from the beaches of the Jersey Shore to the Mongolian steppe and the rainforests of New Guinea, these 11 women have traveled the world as explorers, capturing compelling stories of our planet and its people.

Women of Vision is organized and traveled by the National Geographic Society.
