#HappyBirthday to Miriam O’Brien Underhill, pioneering mountain climber and feminist, born #OnThisDay in 1898. Underhill attended Bryn Mawr and Johns Hopkins to study physics, mathematics, and psychology. She visited the Alps for the first time as a young woman with her parents, and often spent the summers there after World War I. In 1928, Underhill completed the first expedition from the Aiguilles de Diable to Mont Blanc du Tacul in the Alps with three men. Four years later, Underhill and French climber, Alice Damesme ascended the Matterhorn, becoming the first all-women group to do so. In 1934, Underhill wrote an essay for National Geographic called “Manless Mountain Climbing,” in which she advocated for all-women climbing expeditions. Not only did she write about these expeditions, but she led many of them as well. #WomensHistory
