The women who brought us the Moon

By Nieves Lorenzo and Encina Calvo Iglesias

Abstract

[ES] En este artículo presentamos a algunas de las mujeres que con su trabajo hicieron posible la llegada a la Luna y que desafortunadamente son poco conocidas. Una gran labor en la que trabajaron ingenieras, matemáticas, físicas y cuyo reconocimiento nos serviría para proporcionar referentes femeninos en las conocidas como disciplinas STEM ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).Visibilizando a estas mujeres científicas e ingenieras pretendemos contribuir a superar la visión androcéntrica de la ciencia e ingeniería que pervive en nuestra sociedad y promover vocaciones femeninas en estas disciplinas, donde la participación de las mujeres es menor, ayudando de esta forma a fomentar la diversidad en la ciencia.[EN] In this article we present some of the women who with their work made possible the arrival to the Moon and who unfortunately are little known. A great work in which they worked engineers, mathematics, physics and whose recognition would serve us to provide female references in the disciplines known as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). By making these women scientists and engineers visible, we intend to contribute to overcoming the androcentric vision of science and engineering that survives in our society and to promote female vocations in these disciplines, where the participation of women is lower, thus helping to foster diversity in science.Lorenzo, N.; Calvo Iglesias, E.
