About the Speaker:
Rebecca Stephens MBE: Author, first British woman to summit Everest
On 17th May 1993, Rebecca Stephens became the first British woman to climb Everest and was awarded an MBE for her achievement. 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.
In 2001, Rebecca crossed the Antarctic island of South Georgia in the footsteps of Sir Ernest Shackleton; and in November this year sails south again to celebrate the centennial anniversary of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914/16. This will be Rebecca's forth expedition to Antarctica, a continent with whose geography and history she is well versed.
Rebecca is an ambassador of the Shackleton Foundation, founded in 2007 by descendants of Sir Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic expeditions to help disadvantaged and socially marginalised young people.
