Breaking Barriers-Women's Achievements in the Era of Apollo 8
Explore how women in the 1960s contributed to NASA and broke barriers along the way.
As NASA reached for the Moon in the late 1960s, women in the U.S. contributed to that effort and broke barriers in many other areas of American life. From the STEM fields to the corporate boardroom and from the university to the streets, women challenged their exclusion from positions of power and fought for the opportunity to contribute to the ground-breaking advancements of the era.
