In 1997 a group of twenty women set out to become the world’s first all female expedition to the North Pole. Sue and Victoria were surprised to find themselves amongst them. En route to the most isolated and forbidding regions of the globe and facing the bitterest hardships, both were seeking a new beginning. For Sue these were the first steps following treatment for breast cancer. For Victoria, abandoning the security of her career was a good way to test her self-belief. This is mother and daughter, Sue and Victoria’s personal account of their trials and survival in the Arctic. Honest, shocking, but never too serious, Frigid Women is a celebration of the positive, ‘anything is possible’ attitude which can transform life’s tribulations into its most rewarding experiences.
‘This story is a fantastic celebration of adventure, courage, friendship, and love. Enjoy it all you would be adventurers.. and dream on!'
'they embrace an experience that many people would prefer to only read about'
'Their book captures the essence of Arctic travel. It shows that women can survive as well as men and keep their sense of humour. The achievement of these women should not be underestimated.'
