First All Female Space Walk

Here at Bookstr, we praise diversity and celebrate brilliant achievements by all. We know you read Women in Space: 23 Stories of First Flights, Scientific Missions, and Gravity-Breaking Adventures (Women of Action)but looks like they are going to have to add another chapter!

Today we honor the first all female space walk. Space walks were done with women but they are always accompanied by a man. But this morning that changed. It’s hard to believe that it has only been thirty-five years since the first America woman walked in space.

Footage of Christina Koch and Jessica Meir starting their walk can be viewed here    

It is still live so, I highly encourage you guys to check it out. It’s so cool to see more positive female role models for children. Koch and Meir’s knowledge, expertise and achievements, also promotes women and girl in STEM which is essential for young people still in school. It’s absolutely inspiring to see this.

Afterwards, if by chance you haven’t read Women in Space: 23 Stories of First Flights, Scientific Missions, and Gravity-Breaking Adventures (Women of Action)clink on the link to celebrate women’s achievements!
