Her first spacewalk

“All six of us in that first batch of women felt a self-imposed pressure,” says Kathryn Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space.

“We knew our performance would have a big influence on the prospects of the women who would come after us. I was thrilled to be tapped, but the ‘first female spacewalker’ tag really didn’t matter to me. It was my first spacewalk.”

We read about Kathryn Sullivan in the September 18, 2017, issue of Time magazine article “Firsts—Women Who Are Changing the World.”
