Heavenly Bodies: “Manned Space Flight” and the Women’s Movement

When space shuttle astronaut Sally Ride landed after becoming the first American woman in space, NASA officials tried to present her with a bright red bouquet of roses during an elaborately choreographed homecoming ceremony at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. But Ride turned her back on the flowers, and went on to explain to the gathered reporters that she wanted to be treated no different from her male crewmates. “I’m just one of the guys,” she explained. This talk by Neil Maher explores not only the history of Ride’s historic flight, but also the important role played by the feminist movement during the 1960s and 1970s in pressuring NASA to admit women to its previously all-male astronaut corps. Just as women had marched, protested, and lobbied the halls of Congress during the 1910s for the right to vote, feminists during the 1960s era also took to the streets to demand equality for women in space.  This lecutre is made possible by Humanities New York.

Women Voted in New York—Before Columbus

Imagine that women have the right to choose all political representatives, removing from office anyone who doesn’t make wise decisions for the future. Living in a world free from violence against them, women will not allow a man to hold office if he has violated a woman. Economically independent, they have the final say in matters of war and peace and the absolute right to their own bodies.  This is not a dream. Haudenosaunee (traditional Iroquois) women have had this authority — and more — since long before Christopher Columbus came to these shores.  This lecture is provided by Sally Roesch Wagner, Professor, Syracuse University; Director, Matilda Joslyn Gage Center for Social Justice Dialogue.  This lecutre is made possible by Humanities New York.

Books and Brew Book Club

Book:  Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.  In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.  *Being adapted to a film in 2018 by Steven Spielberg

We meet at Juan Murphy's Irish Pub and Mexican Grub 796 Main Street Poughkeepsie (Formerly The Dubliner).
