We need more women in space

So far there have been 566 astronauts from 41 different countries who have been in space. Only 65 of those astronauts were women. It was only after the 1980s when flight programs began including women, however men are still chosen significantly more creating an immese gender gap of astronauts who have been in space. From when Neil Armstrong took the first big leap for mankind to now, 12 men have stepped foot on the Moon. Only after 2024 as part of the Artemis Program the first woman will land on the Moon. We are constantly exploring our solar system but we shouldn't let it be seen through the eyes of just one gender. We need more women in space.
