The first lady on the top female explorers’ list has to be Jeanne Baret. Jeanne was a French botanist who became the first woman to travel around the globe. She started her career as a housekeeper for the naturalist Philibert Commerson. Soon Philibert got impressed with this talented and ambitious young woman and offered her to work with him as a botanist. In those days, women were not allowed to work on French Navy ships. Thus, Jeanne Baret disguised herself as a man and set out on a risky journey of botanical discovery. During her journey from 1764-1769, she completed several botanical expeditions across South America and the Pacific.
