"I have always wanted to explore inaccessible and dangerous places. As a child, I dreamed about flying to space. I had often heard that it was a man’s trade, that one shouldn’t have daydreamed. I refused those rules, I had to become a space engineer, built rockets, I applied to be an astronaut and I was refused. My initial anger passed, I have tried to understand why. Researching the place of women in the space race enable deeper reflection into the limits of gender and its representations."
