Nevertheless She Existed: the Women They Don't Want You to Know About is the shameless feminist party you've been waiting for. Each month a lineup of female storytellers, comedians, and historians join forces to share the stories of some of the greatest women the world has ever known (but history erased). We're cracking open the history books and throwing in some feminism- one bad bitch at a time.
This month's theme: Taking Up Space, Women Who Took to the Skies
This November, Nevertheless She Existed is teaming up with Science Friday to celebrate women in space! Ladies have looked to the sky for centuries—even when men on Earth told them to stay grounded. We're sharing the celestial stories of the female astronomers, astrophysicists, and other scientists who shot for the stars and expanded our horizons.

About Science Friday:
Science Friday is your trusted source for news and entertaining stories about science. For 25 years we’ve introduced top scientists to public radio listeners, and reminded them how much fun it is to learn something new. But we’re more than just a radio show. We produce award-winning digital videos, original web articles, live events, and educational resources for teachers and informal educators. We like to say we’re brain fun, for curious people. All of our work is independently produced by the Science Friday Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the public’s access to science and scientific information. WNYC Studios distributes our radio show and podcast, which you can catch on public radio stations across the U.S.
REFUND POLICY: Tickets maybe be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.
