Words: JL Williams


You think you know history, but that’s not how it really happened.


Gagarin, Shepherd, Armstrong, Aldrin, all those guys were late to the party. Vostok 1, Freedom 7, the Apollo missions they were dragging their tails. One small step for man was light years behind the woman. The woman was the first, long before them. She flew, on the wings of anger and rage, on the back of her fury to watch down from the far side of the moon. Holding the tides in her power, taking her space, finding peace. Why haven’t you heard her name?
