The Box's Crush of the Week: Kirsten Gum

This week the box has a good old fashioned feminist crush on Kirsten Gum, the Travel Channel's Treasure Hunter. There's no stretch of the imagination required to understand her appeal: She travels the world searching for treasure, often braving intense elements and physical challenges to get to it. Watching her accomplish her goals is inspiring, but Gum's sense of humor and winning attitude makes it fun, too.

So if you're in the mood for some solid strong-woman-kicking-ass entertainment, Gum is your girl. Check her out Saturdays at 9pm on the Travel Channel. For action-packed clips, check out her website and the show's homepage.

Love what you're reading here? Then you'll love Bitch magazine. The reviews are snappy, the analysis in-depth, the writers are downright sharp, and the illustrations so often belong in a frame that you'll have to move over other artwork.

If you don't have a subscription to our award-winning 80-page quarterly magazine, it's definitely time to start one.
