A Woman's Guide to the Wild

Apr 26, 2016

Ruby McConnell

  A Woman’s Guide to the Wild is the first outdoor guidebook specifically addressing women’s unique wilderness needs. Author Ruby McConnell speaks with Eric Alan about correcting the perceived outdoor gender gap, particularly when women have long been leaders in the environmental movement. 

She also talks about subtle hazing, best practices in the wilderness, and what role her book will play in addressing the issues. She appears at Pint to Trail: Eugene Brewshed and Outdoor Celebration at Ninkasi Brewing on Thursday, April 28th.
