Especially for all my women friends and fellow geeks of all sexual persuasions, there is never going to be a better time to post this gif.

My cousin and I went to see Hidden Figures today - which I'd highly recommend. It's inspirational - those women overcame so much to do great things - both institutionally embedded colour and gender bigotry - and it's shameful that they are only getting the recognition they deserve now. I couldn't believe that Katherine Goble Johnson had to wait until she was 97 to be publicly honoured. The film isn't preachy though, or (as far as I could see) oversentimentalised, and it had the ring of truth. I think they conflated events from the three women's lives for the sake of drama, but the essentials of the story are close to their real lives. The acting is so good, you beleive each and every one of them are real people. It's a good story, well told.
