June 16, 1963, Valentina Tereshkova first woman to fly in space.
June 16, 2012, Liu Yang first Chinese woman to fly in space.

Sally Ride, 1st American woman in space, went up June 18, 1983. I wonder if at any point the plan was to launch on the 16th?

If the 16th of June, 1983, were ever in mind the plan was abandoned early. Dennis Jenkins's guide says that Sally Ride's STS-7 was launched without delays. (And this was the third shuttle so launched, which must say, suggests the shuttle must've seemed to be getting where it was supposed to be).
