For all the successes of men in the scientific and mathematical fields, there is always countless amount of equally brilliant women forced to hide in the shadows. NASA is just the same and Hidden Figures tells the tale of the great ladies who propelled us into space…
The film revolves around brilliant mathematician Katherine Johnson who worked with Dorothy Vaughn and Mary Jackson as the man brains who sent John Glenn into space. On the ground, however, the ladies have to contend sexism and racism.
Starring Taraji P. Henderson, Janelle Monae, and Olivia Spencer, this seems to be a terrific historical film and an important lesson for them!
