I have been featuring #wcw on my social media for months now, and I have now decided to start featuring my #wcw on the blog as well, as not everyone has social media. Woman Crush Wednesday (#wcw) is often a stereotypical babe that is plastered all over the internet on a weekly basis. I’m not fond of social norms, and going against the grain is what I do, so I have decided that my #wcw each week is going to be a woman who is intelligent, a shaker and mover and an overall contributor to society.
This week, I am featuring Valentina Tereshkova. Valentina was a former Cosmonaut and the FIRST WOMAN IN SPACE! She was a high school drop out and had only very little training before entering the official space program. She went on to be the first woman in space, spending over 70 hours in the ether. She went on to be influential in Soviet science and politics. Find out more about Valentina HERE.
