Junko Tabei: First woman to scale Mt Everest

She became the world’s first woman to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, the world’s highest peak, on May 16, 1975. Her passion was propelled in part by the quest to defy odds, challenge stereotypes and prove wrong the chauvinist notion that doubts the ability of women to achieve goals like climbing Earth’s highest point.
