Abstract

This monograph is a gender history of the American space community and analyzes several different groups of women interacting in different social spaces within the space community. It offers insight into the several layers of female participation and agency in the community, as well as the gender and race-based obstacles they faced. This systematic analysis of the connection between gender, space, and the Cold War adds a new dimension to space history and expands the discourse in American history about gender relations and the opportunities of women in the twentieth century.
