30 Days of Pride: Sally Ride

June 1st kicked off Pride Month! So for the next 30 days let's recognize the people who played pivotal roles in LGBTQ History.

DAY FOUR 👉 SALLY RIDE

"America’s first female astronaut, the first woman in space, and space shuttle robotic arm operator, Sally Ride helped pave the way for women in STEM — and when she came out posthumously, and subtly, in her obituary, she became many, many more firsts for queer women everywhere.

Her pioneering work to increase women in STEM didn’t stop short at simply being iconic representation: the company mentioned in her obituary, Sally Ride Science, was founded in 2001 to “inspire young people in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and to promote STEM literacy.” Among its co-founders was O’Shaughnessy, who is now executive director of the relaunched Sally Ride Science at UC San Diego."
