I just read a well-writen LA Times article about gender vs. science aptitude (and it included actual success stories by females in science). It was written by Laurie Reitman and was pretty well done.
But in her story, Reitman included the following sentence "Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has spoken of writing as a child to NASA asking how she could become an astronaut after watching the first men walk on the moon, only to be told the program didn't accept women"
It's a heartbreaking story for any little girl with big dreams but the facts in this story could not possibly be true. Afterall, Senator Clinton was born in 1947 and so she was at least 21 years old when Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon in 1969!
It appears Reitman got her facts a little wrong and her editors all had the day off for Father's Day.
