#wcw | Sally Ride | Astronaut & First American Woman In Space

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. 

WATCH HERE: SALLY RIDE | Astronaut / First American Woman in Space / Physicist / Educator / Girl Boss

SALLY RIDE was an amazing woman, astronaut, educator and physicist. In 1983, astronaut and astrophysicist Sally Ride became the first American woman in space aboard the space shuttle Challenger. After NASA, Ride became the director of the California Space Institute at the University of California, San Diego, as well as a professor of physics at the school in 1989. In 2001, she started her own company to create educational programs and products known as Sally Ride Science to help inspire girls and young women to pursue their interests in science and math. Ride served as president and CEO. Ride died on July 23, 2012 at the age of 61, following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
