Saw Hidden Figures this afternoon.  I'd finished some errands and just checked the times, figured I'd have a shot at some free time on Thursday.  But there was a show starting in just a few minutes, so I figured, now is as good as any time, and off I went.  I am so glad I did!  It is a wonderful movie, the acting was terrific, and the story was so exciting.  Women!  Math!  Programmers!  What a great reminder that Black women used to rule in math and coding.  White women were in there too, but also a reminder that the jobs were mostly undervalued when women did them, and when men got into them, the value put on them went up and women got shut out.  

I got weepy when they showed JFK talking about going to the moon.  Got weepy at the end, too, but in a good way.  Women took us into space.  Go us!
