I don't know. Call me old fashioned, but I really don't care that it is the 2nd all-women spacewalk. Are we gonna "acknowledge" the 3rd, 4th, 5th.... 25th, 100th? Seriously. The most qualified individual is performing the requirements of the spacewalk. I am very proud of our astronauts, because of their knowledge and skill, not because of their gender. Lord help us if we start seeing headlines like the "First transgender astronaut spacewalk", or the "First non-binary thing taking a spacewalk". Seriously. They are astronauts because of the skill and training they have completed and are proficient at. Beyond that, they are just humans, just like everyone else here on the planet.
