SOUND ON! Female marines battling each other with pugil sticks during the Crucible. Training with pugil sticks, heavily padded pole-like training weapon, has been used since the early 1940s by military personnel in training for rifle and bayonet combat. On today‘s battlefields, more women than ever are in the fight. Females are taking more active roles in militaries, serving on the front lines of armed conflicts and as peacekeepers in the world‘s hot spots. Marines have to be able to carry one another if necessary. Of the 38,000 recruits who enter the corps each year, about 3,500 are women—or, in USMC phrasing, “female marines.” This story is featured in the November special issue of @natgeo, “Women: A Century of Change.” Nat Geo is celebrating women who fearlessly push boundaries and inspire the next generation of changemakers.

SOUND ON! Mongolian peacekeeper with @unpeacekeeping, Otgonjargal Dagvasuren, 30 years old. Having been a senior sergeant in the military for 9 years, Otgonjargal wears traditional dress during a ceremony, on her first peacekeeping mission, in South Sudan. In South Sudan, Mongolian women are among the UN peacekeepers patrolling protection camps. - Of the 19,500 United Nations peacekeepers helping protect civilians in the conflict-roiled new nation of South Sudan, about 1,600 are women, from many countries. The women’s presence is part of a newly intensified effort to bring more gender balance to forces the UN deploys internationally. “This is not just a question of numbers but also of our effectiveness,” UN Secretary-General António Guterres told Security Council members recently. Adding more women peacekeepers, he said, truly does seem to help keep the peace. - On today‘s battlefields, more women than ever are in the fight.

A more unusual mode of transport - on top of a tank - on assignment for @natgeo in South Sudan, for a story featured in the November special issue, “Women: A Century of Change.” I travelled to six countries to document women on the frontlines. @natgeo is celebrating women who fearlessly push boundaries and inspire the next generation of changemakers.

I can’t believe more than a year has passed since I published my first solo collection of photography, “Of Love & War” by @penguinpress. I missed my own publication anniversary! If you’re looking for a holiday gift, or for something that doesn’t require standing on line on Black Friday, look no further! It’s available online, on @Amazon, @barnesandnoble and other book stores. Link in bio.

A typical day at Parris Island consists of a 4 a.m. wake-up, physical fitness, academic classes and group meals. Teamwork is central to everything the recruits do. All of this is in preparation for “the Crucible” — a 54-hour marathon of physical and emotional endurance that will test what they have learned. “The Crucible is actually seeing everything that has been taught to them come to life,” said Staff Sgt. Jasmine Rodgers, a 26-year-old drill instructor from Philadelphia. “It shows the best and the worst from them, and by the end of it, they are better for it.” All this to become recruits to Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, S.C. - the only place in the country where women become Marines. Today, women make up 8 percent of the United States Marine Corps. I documented the process from civilian, to recruit, to marine for a story on women on the frontlines in this month’s @natgeo magazine, in which I covered women on the frontlines of war, on peacekeeping missions, and in training in five countries over six months. On today‘s battlefields, more women than ever are in the fight. Females are taking more active roles in militaries, serving on the front lines of armed conflicts and as peacekeepers in the world‘s hot spots.
