While they are still testing Cochran Becomes furious with Lovelace because he wont let her train too.
Strike one! Cochran states her prepared statement. "Strike two! "No woman should be selected as an astronaut trainee unless a sufficient group of women are simultaneously selected so that norms can be established rather than merely the individual capabilities of one or a few who might not be representative of women as a whole." "(70) Strike three! It seems like Cochran is trying to prevent the women form going to space, but why?

Testing is Canceled
"Arriving at the Lovelace Clinic one day to discover candidates being tested who were not on her suggested list further provoked her"(72)
Question for Book Club
Angered Cochran threatened to pull her funding, even though she would, could be helping women every where.

Why do you think Cochran was so upset when she found out she couldn't do the training?
