While opportunities continue to open for women in technology and engineering, there’s always room for female-forward adventure — as such, National Geographic Live presents Mireya Mayor: Pink Boots and a Machete. Described as a sort of “female Indiana Jones,” noted primatologist Mayor has escaped furious gorillas, dodged dodgy elephants, and discovered an entirely new species of Malagasy lemur. She’s also a correspondent for Nat Geo, which means that tonight will be presented in startling color, chaos and clarity that reveals unto you more about the natural world than you’ve ever ventured into in your wildest dreams.
