Tam O'Shaugnessy, who accepted the Medal of Freedom on behalf of Sally Ride, speaks about her life's work and impact to the world.

Sally Ride was the first American female astronaut to travel to space. As a role model to generations of young women, she advocated passionately for science education, stood up for racial and gender equality in the classroom, and taught students from every background that there are no limits to what they can accomplish. Dr. Ride also served in several administrations as an advisor on space exploration.
