This is a video from a campaign called 'Take the Lead', looking at showcasing inspiring women. I thought the video was pretty thought provoking...

There is a lot of women for girls to be inspired by. They are just not talked about. We need to shout louder about the achievements of women.

Valentina Tereshkova

‘If women can be railroad workers in Russia, why can’t they fly in space?’

In 1963, Valentina, a former textile worker from the Soviet Union became the first woman in space, orbiting the earth forty-eight times.

Not only that, she logged more flight time than the total combined times of every American astronaut who had flown before her. She was only 26 years old.
