Women in the Outdoors
Of all women adventurous and courageous—lets pay tribute to the significant contribution that former North Vancouver resident and Historical Mountaineer Phyllis Munday has made to the outdoor industry and to the lives of women everywhere who enjoy the outdoors. A true trailblazer!
Phyllis B Munday, CM (1894 – 1990) was a Canadian mountaineer, explorer, naturalist and humanitarian, famed for being the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Robson (with Annette Buck) in 1924. Awarded the Order of Canada in 1972 for her work with the Girl Guides of Canada and St. John Ambulance as well as for her mountaineering career.
