Rebecca Stephens MBE, the 1st GB woman on Everest
On 17th May 1993, Rebecca Stephens became the first British woman to climb Everest. The following year she went on to become the first British woman to scale the Seven Summits, the highest mountain on each of the seven continents. Her interest in climbing was ignited when, in her late twenties, she accompanied an Anglo-American expedition on Everest’s North East Ridge in 1989.
