Women Mountaineer Guides
Listen to the:
Lucky, Dicky, and Nicky sounds like a cartoon show, but what they do is worthy of a documentary. They are sisters who teach women how to be mountaineering guides in Nepal. While running a hotel, they discovered many female guests felt uncomfortable trekking with a male guide. So the three formed “The Three Sisters Adventure Trekking Company.” They soon discovered they needed more female guides, but few women would apply for training. Thirteen years later, they now have more applicants than they can handle. Lucky says the training program has a dramatic, transformative effect on many of the women. They feel a new sense of empowerment as trekking guides. Peter Aronson reports.
