A stigma surrounds the art of traveling solo – especially if you are female. People tend to express fear or concern over a woman when they hear that she is going somewhere unfamiliar by herself. Solo Female Traveler, a short documentary, was created to help break the stigma and send the message to those who are unsure that it IS safe for a female to travel the world alone, and that a lot of women from all walks of life continuously do it.
