I found this link interesting since it’s a biography of a woman, who became a pilot.
I really like this article about Amelia Earhart, who was born in the nineteenth century , when it was a beginning of changes in social role of women.Women started writing , working and finally , becoming a pilot ! Ihave a friend of mine who is a pilot, most airplane crew don’t have a woman-pilot nowadays ! It’s very rare to see it. I think it was a significant shift. The fact that she had long-distance flights impressed me a lot .
Amelia Earhart: “Please know I am quite aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try like men have tried. When they fail, failure must be but a challenge to others.”
This quote made me think that she was one of the feminists at that time. I hear a strong temper that arises from her words :”I want to do it because I want to do it”. Amelia thought that if a man could do it then a woman could try to do it!
I love her words that even inspired me!
