Not that long ago, women were not allowed to do many of the things that men did. Women were not allowed to vote. They weren’t supposed to drive cars or fly planes. They definitely weren’t expected to go into space! Some women became very famous for being the first woman to do something new or challenging. Sally Ride and Mae Jemison were two of these amazing women.
