President's Message

BWA Sisters,

It's a New Year and New beginnings for BWA!  We are returning to the Tower Club for our meetings starting this month. Let's all make a New Year's Resolution to renew our commitment to our wonderful organization.  Plan to attend to hear our interesting speaker. Martha Lemasters, with her unique perspective of the Apollo space program. Also, think about inviting a guest.  We need new members to continue to grow this organization, and we depend on you to reach out to colleagues and friends to spread the word on how amazing our group is!

I look forward to kicking off 2017 with a record attendance, so please RSVP now.


Holly Moody

President 2016-2017


Meeting Information 

The Step: One Woman’s Journey to Finding her Own Happiness and Success During the Apollo Space Program


Martha Lemasters


In the 1960’s, during the great space race, Martha Lemasters was a divorced mother of three working on the Apollo program. From facing sexism on the job, to struggling to find fulfillment in her personal relationships, to witnessing history first hand, The Step is a brave and inspiring memoir by one woman who was there to see and do it all! “I felt history had to include a woman’s perspective of what it was like to work in an environment where men outnumbered women by 200 to one,” explains Lemasters. This glimpse into the past provides readers with a comprehensive look at one of the contractor teams that helped make history. In a time when women were deemed a liability simply due to their very existence on site, this single mother overcame monumental obstacles to find success both personally and professionally. In this bold and exciting memoir science, history, humor and romance collide as the author shares her struggles, triumphs, and determined spirit.
