Junko Tabei ( 22 September 1939 – 20 October 2016) was the first woman to climb Mount Everest.

She was also the first woman to complete the Seven Summits (the highest peaks on each of the seven continents in 1992).

On what would have been her 80th birthday, Google is honouring Tabei with an animated Doodle. https://g.co/doodle/ngan9h
