Female To Climb Mt. Everest for Women Empowerment

So I thought this story was pretty compelling. In light of a lot of what’s happening in the world from political protests, all the way to the #MeToo movement, one female Nepal native, Diki Sherpa has decided to climb Mt. Everest, the world’s highest mountain above sea level, as a symbol of women empowerment.

Wow!… Not only will she climb the enormous mountain, but she has already also coined the motto: ‘Positive thinking for gender equality, inclusive society championed from the highest peak,’ as a way to champion womanhood, while partaking in a male dominated physical activity.

And for all those extraordinarily worried, Sherpa does have advanced training in mountaineering and is set to go up Mt. Everest this spring. Let’s support Sherpa!
