Sally Ride

In 1983, Sally Ride made history as the first American woman in space. That same year, she was interviewed by Gloria Steinem for her series ‘In Conversation with…’ and discussed her early career. The short animated film from PBS Digital Studios also provides an insight on the views from the media and society in the early 80’s. Ride reveals that while NASA was enlightened about flying women astronauts, the press seemed the opposite as they asked irrelevant questions about bathroom facilities and make up rather than her abilities to operate the arm or deploy communication satellites. Hear more outtakes from the interview here.

Fun fact: we named our first BGC varsity after Sally Ride, the first American woman in space!
