Women's Forum partners with 'Hidden Figures'

02.02.2017

The Women's Forum is proud to be a partner for the French release (8 March) of Hidden Figures (Figures de l'ombre), which was recently nominated for three Oscars including Best Picture in the United States. Hidden Figures tells the (true) story of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson, three African-American women working at NASA. Together they were the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire future generations to dream big.
