Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer), and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) must deal with sexism from their male superiors and subordinates who assume they’re secretaries, and as African-Americans, they face even more prejudice, including systemic things like having to walk a half mile or more to find a “colored” bathroom on NASA’s campus. Their triumph over these obstacles is inspiring, and the film serves as a wonderful historic document of women whose stories deserved to be more widely known.
