Junko Tabei Becomes First Woman to Summit Mount Everest (1975)

Junko Tabei found the courage to leave her team-mates behind and embark on a 12-day physical and mental pilgrimage to become the first woman to reach the Mount Everest summit 45 years ago.

After her camp was buried by a slab of snow for three days, the Japanese mountaineer was not to be defeated, ploughing through a 9,000ft avalanche with her guide for comfort and assistance.

Tabei, the fifth of seven children, had shattered the notion that a woman was not capable, or indeed able to climb the world's highest mountain.

Tabei did not want to be known as the first woman to climb Everest. Instead she preferred to be remembered as the 36th person to achieve the feat. “I did not intend to be the first woman on Everest,” she said in the years after her achievement.

The 4ft 9in mother-of-two discovered her passion for mountain climbing at just 10-years-old during a class trip to Mount Nasu.
