"Women of Vision" Exhibits Work by Female National Geographic Photojournalists

National Geographic photojournalist Maggie Steber remembers one of the first times she was confronted with the real possibility of danger on the job.

"Once in Haiti in a church that had been attacked by a gang with machetes and machine guns, and it was the church of Father Aristide, who later became president, and many people were killed, and there was only one way out, and I realized I had to get out, and I panicked," Steber recounts from her Miami home. "I ran down the middle aisle of the church and right into the arms of a man with a machete, and he raised the machete." An old, worn trapping of femininity ended up saving her life.
