"Girls are capable of doing everything men are capable of doing. Sometimes they have more imagination than men."- Katherine Johnson
Global Girlfriend would like to extend our biggest shout out to all the hardworking females in science for International Day of Women and Girls in science. We'd like to present Katherine Johnson as our featured woman for 20 Women for 2020!
Katherine Johnson paved the road not only women but women of color in science specifically in astrophysics, a new focus of science at the time of her most prominent roles. She contributed calculating trajectories for the first American Orbit, and continuing at NASA, she has also helped in mathematics for the Space Shuttle Program and mars exploration.
