Groups That Support Women Who Love the Outdoors

Bridget Blake // March 11

Looking for groups that support women in the outdoors? Newsflash: March is International Women’s History Month. Maybe you have heard of it, maybe not. We can all agree that every day we should celebrate the bada*s women who rule the world, but by understanding the what and the why we can continue to call attention to the disparities we face and keep fighting the good fight for women everywhere. 

Women's History Month began as a week-long event in 1978 in California before being recognized nationally in 1981. In 1987 the National Women’s History Project commissioned Congress to expand the celebration to the entire month. This year, the theme is women who inspire diversity, equity, and inclusion, challenging women to eliminate bias and discrimination. 

Being women of the outdoors, we’ve been confronted with trying to adapt to situations and sports that cater to our male counterparts or face not being taken seriously or included. Yet, we continue to advocate for allyship across the board to seek outdoor adventures.

Groups That Support Women Who Love the Outdoors

Let’s explore a few groups that support women who love the outdoors.

There are a ton of groups that support women who love the outdoors in most cities and states.

Of course, we can’t forget our very favorite outdoors women’s group: Miss Pursuit. Here, we hope to infuse our love of the outdoors and provide a safe space to learn and grow. Maybe this year honor women everywhere and join a group or grab a fellow ladyfriend and get outside.
