Junko Tabei in Google Doodle:

A small, colourful manga figure hops happily from mountain to mountain. The seven summits shown here are the highest in the world - the "Seven Summits":

  • Kibo in Africa
  • Mount Vinson in the Antarctic
  • Mount Everest in Asia
  • Puncak Jaya and Mount Kosciuszko in Australia
  • Mount and Elbrus in Europe
  • Denali in North America
  • Aconcagua in South America
  • Under the animated comic is Google's search engine logo. The Doodle celebrates the birthday of an extraordinary woman storming mountain peaks in 76 countries.

The first woman on Everest: JunkoTabei

"I did not want to be the first woman on Everest," Tabei said once. She was. But she would rather be remembered as the 36th human being to climb the highest mountain in the world, Google writes about this doodle.

And the expedition was not easy: Tabei started in the spring of 1975 with 15 climbers and 6 Sherpas in the direction of the summit.

At an altitude of 2743 meters, an avalanche buried the camp. But the Japanese girl did not give up: she recovered for three days - and then continued the climb.

On May 16, 1975, she reached the summit with the Sherpa Ang Tshering. For that, she was celebrated. Also, the Japanese imperial family congratulated the mountaineer.

A Japanese mother founded a mountaineering club for women

But she did not write history only then. As the mother of two children, she founded the first Women's Climbing Club in 1969 - a move that contradicted the female image of the time.

Women should stay home and clean up after the show. But Tabei wanted to climb. Already as a 10-year-old, she should have discovered her passion on a school trip.

Your advice for others? "Do not give up," she said. "Stay true to your goal." On October 20, 2016, the legendary climber died as a result of cancer. Until the end, she remained true to her love for climbing.
