Women in Flight & The Space Age
I’d like to introduce my newest project! Leading Ladies is an ongoing project intended to commemorate the plethora of amazing women of the past and present.
Every Leading Lady paper doll template is available in a PDF download to assemble at home.
Imagine the possibilities that await! Print these over and over. Share them, and pass them around. Make them or gift them. You choose! Please make sure that you learn about these women and all that they have accomplished! NASA & SPACEX, Astronauts, Cosmonauts, Taikonauts, Spationauts, and Space Travelers all have one thing in common. Their goal is the advancement of the human race through scientific discoveries found in space.
Keep an eye on the site, as I will be adding batches of new designs! Don’t miss a chance to download an inspiring SHERO! Cheers to these Leading Ladies! May we be them! May we raise them! May we aim for the stars with them!
I loved playing with paper dolls as a kid. They travel easily and provide a fun craft with an engaging activity allowing imaginative play to fill hours of time with adventures! My hope is that these incredible women will inspire generations of future Leading Ladies. The sky is no longer the limit!

Astronaut Dr. Anna Lee Fisher was The First Mother in Space!
In 1984 Dr. Fisher traveled to Space on NASA's Discovery. Her work at NASA spanned many different systems. Among them, the Canadarm, or "Robotic Arm", payload door operations, systems development and testing, procedural mission planning, and design of the "EMU", or the Extra-Small Extravehicular Mobility Unit, otherwise known as a women's extra small space suit! Dr. Fisher served as Branch Chief of the International Space Station, then she worked on the Orion Spacecraft project until her retirement. Hats off to this Leading Lady!
