From Denny: Here's something people don't do every day: take a 560 mile freezing journey in subzero temperatures for 38 days. Seven women, all from different walks of life, skiied together in Antarctica down to the South Pole on a journey of a life time.

Can you believe it that over 800 women applied to become part of this historic journey of the Commonwealth Antarctic Expedition? This international expedition of women was initiated to highlight just how much modern women can do.
