Today in Heritage History, May 28, 1997, the very first all female expedition (20 British women) reaches the North Pole. They were also the first explorers to don spiked high heels and strapless sequin gowns at the North Pole since Robert Peary was forced to do so in 1909, after getting his expedition team stranded in a snow storm for three (long,long) months.
