Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart
No other female aviator has had Amelia Earhart's instant worldwide fame. Committed to aviation, she promoted "airmindedness" at a time when most people were skeptical about airplanes as a form of transportation. Her confident personal and media presence reached millions in the 1920s and 1930s and still resonates today.
