Awesome moments in history — In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.

Wow. Think about the world of fitness now and how within reasonably recent history, women were not allowed to compete in marathons. She and this changed everything.
Via Oxford Astrologer who makes the point that this is a CLASSIC Uranus-Pluto event (or Zap Zone, in my lingo)
Remember, Uranus and Pluto spent the mid-60s more or less conjunct in Virgo.
Ms Switzer is a multiple conjunct Cap (Mercury-Mars-Sun) She is also blessed with Uranus on her North Node in Gemini f.y.i AND ) had to look, asteroid Nike conjunct her Venus in Sagg.
Feminism or rather, gender equality, is totes Uranian. Note that one of the key media events of the first Uranus sq Pluto zap the other day was the atrocious execution of a young woman for adultery in a supposedly “liberated” Afghanistan.
