Certainly not what I was expecting. My first thought was woman's ice skating, one of my favorite Olympic events. According to the article it sounds like a great work opportunity in Antarctica. The rewards probably would be well worth the isolation. Definitely a very worthwhile activity.
Come to Antarctica! Be surrounded by dudes!
I bet it was some desperate guys who are up there right now that summit this as a "job opportunity" for women.
surrounded by randy dudes.
Randy dudes with nothing else to spend the money on...
Pity they don't need any graphic designers.
Not getting much around here anyway...
18 months!?!? That's a long time to be away. I've spent some time in the Arctic and its no picnic - especially in winter. 24 hours of night, no sun, can be a real downer - it will be interesting to see if this actually works
TOO many desperate tradesmen. They should increase the salary to attract more potential "tradeswomen."
Minus 40 C (or -40 F, same thing) is not so bad....it is the wind that will cut through you like a knife. A mixed gender work group keeps eveyone more stable. If you think a bunch of horny guys is tough to manage, try a group of catty, isolated women. I doubt much "let's keep warm together under the covers" goes on. Although, human nature being what it is.....
I don't understand the comments about the extended nights (stay inside, keep the lights on), or the cold (stay inside). Granted, I retired from the Navy, serving in submarines (no windows, it's really dark if the lights get turned off).
I wouldn't mind going down to work. Unfortunately, I'm not a member of the target audience.
