The first person on Mars 'should be a woman'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Allison McIntyre, who puts prospective space travellers through their paces at Johnson Space Center in Houston, noted that all 12 people who have walked on the Moon were men.

She believes women should be at the forefront if and when the agency sends its first human missions to Mars.

BBC Radio 5 live has been behind the scenes at Nasa in Texas and Florida.

They have been meeting women at the forefront of the 21st century space race.

It's more than half a century since Russia sent the first woman into space, and 40 years since Nasa selected its first female astronaut.

But there still hasn't been a woman on the Moon, and women remain under represented in science and engineering industries on both sides of the Atlantic.'

20th C: Women should have the same opportunities as men and further should be deferred to in that regard.
21st C: Regardless of qualifications compared to others, women should be promoted, vaunted, and be placed in preferred positions no matter the cost to society or anyone else.
22nd C: Stay tuned.

To compensate womyn for not getting to go to the Moon, the first peopled mission to Mars should be crewed entirely by intersectional gender feminists (as many as can be stuffed in that extra-large capsule NASA is developing).
