Shetterly highlights an important segment in US History by focusing on four intelligent ladies whose skill earned them places in what is now NASA. Their acceptance into this program was blocked, at first, because misguided beliefs about their skin color and gender prohibited their participation. Context, setting, and a timeline of events is beautifully conveyed and displayed for readers to understand the gradual mindset changes within NASA that opened opportunity for these influential ladies to significantly impact programs, flights, and policy. Instructive and absorbing.
