STEM careers (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) were once dominated by men. Girls were not encouraged to pursue those disciplines, and women working in STEM careers were an exception to the norm.

Johnson is best known for being “the girl” that astronaut John Glenn wanted manually verifying the computer calculations necessary for the Friendship 7 mission. The movie represented how in the 1950s and 1960s, women like Johnson had to work harder and longer to overcome the prejudices of the time to gain the respect of her associates. Through the breakthroughs of Johnson and other women like her, the tables are turning and STEM-based industries are more welcoming to women.
