In 1965, Outward Bound took 28 women into the great outdoors to paddle lakes, hike, and catch fish. They forged a bond that's unlike any other, and 47 years later they gathered again to reminisce on the lessons they learned and memories made. This trailer for Women Outward Bound shares the tale of 28 courageous women who pioneered women's participation in Outward Bound's courses. Screenings of the full film will be taking place across the U.S. and in conjunction with the Reel Paddling Film Fest.
