In 1961, women were expected to be wives and mothers; they couldn’t rent a car or take out a loan without a husband’s signature. Pilot Jerrie Cobb, who had more hours in the air than John Glenn, passed all the tests the astronauts took with flying colors, as did 13 other women pilots who dreamed of spaceflight. They had the right stuff, but were the wrong sex, and it wasn’t until 1978 that women were admitted to the space program. Illus. with photos.
