Sexism in Space? - ISS SSTV Image of Pioneering Cosmonaut
 
I went back and forth on different ways to title this video. I didn't want to make it only about how this cosmonaut was a woman, and I considered some more gender specific titles, and some less gender specific titles, but this is what I ended up with, something somewhere in-between.

To be honest, the main reason I wanted to include gender in the title is because I thought more people would want to view it if it referenced this cosmonaut's uncommon gender. It's a click-baity thing to do, you might say. I'm open to feedback on any of these issues.



Regardless, I hope you like the video aside from what I chose to title it!
