Hello Women@NASA Blog Readers!
Tomorrow begins a month of celebrating those who came before us and paved the way so that we would have the rights to be who we are. To celebrate who we were. And who we will become.
As such, for each day in March, we will post a Women in History Shout Out. So if you have a woman you want honored, leave a comment here, on our Facebook wall, or Tweet @WomenNASA. All you need to do is suggest the honoree’s name and one line about who she is. We will do the in-depth research. Don’t assume your favorite is so obvious that we would just know to pick her. There are so many women to honor and only so many days.
Additionally, Women@NASA is hosting Women, Innovation and Aerospace on March 8th to celebrate Women’s History Month. If you are near a NASA center, please attend! All events are free and open to the public but seating is limited so you must register. Learn more here.
It’s been an exciting time for us here at Women@NASA. We have a steadily growing followership on Twitter and Facebook, most of whom we are positive don’t already read the blog. This means we are reaching out to more and more people and with social media, our hope is we are also reaching out to young people and inspiring them to impact the world through science and engineering. For the future, you can expect a smartphone application and partnerships with women’s organizations. We won’t leak too many details but we can assure you they will be fun, lively, new, and targeted just for our readers/followers/supporters.
Thanks for reading/following!
