20 Feb : First woman set foot on Antarctica

  1. Women are excelling in almost every field. They are going to space. And so are they reaching the most isolated place on earth – Antarctica. That too 82 years back.

It was not known for many years, but fact remains as it is. The first person to set foot on Antarctica was a woman. Today in 1935, Caroline Mikkelsen, from Norway, became the first known woman to set foot on Antarctica. Mount Caroline Mikkelsen is named for her. This was no doubt, a great achievement.

1935 में आज पहली बार एक महिला ने Antarctica में कदम रखा था। उस महिला का नाम था Caroline Mikkelsen। Caroline के नाम से यहां एक पहाड़ भी है जिसे माउंट Caroline Mikkelsen कहा जाता है। उन्होंने कभी इस बात का श्रेय नहीं लिया, क्योंकि बहुत समय तक तो वो जानती भी नहीं थी कि उन्होंने क्या पाया है।
