Professional life

Amelia Earhart was a pioneering aviator and a celebrated feminist icon. Born in 1897 in Atchison, Kansas, Earhart was an enthusiastic reader, an independent thinker, and an adventurous spirit from a young age. She was the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, a feat that made headlines around the world.

Earhart had aspirations of becoming an aviator from an early age. She took her first flight in 1920, and soon became the first woman to earn a pilot’s license from the National Aeronautic Association. She was an advocate for women’s rights and worked with the Women's National Aeronautic Association to promote the advancement of women in aviation.

In 1928, Earhart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean accompanied by pilot Wilmer Stultz.  She made the journey in a single-engine plane and became an international celebrity upon her return. In 1932, she set a world record when she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. This accomplishment further solidified her place in history and her status as a feminist icon.

Earhart also wrote several books, including her autobiography “The Fun of It”, which was published in 1932. In addition to her writing, Earhart was a skilled public speaker, giving lectures about aviation and women’s rights.

In 1937, Earhart embarked on an ambitious attempt to become the first woman to fly around the world. Tragically, her plane disappeared over the Pacific Ocean and she was never seen again. Despite the mystery surrounding her disappearance, Earhart’s legacy lives on. She has been honored in a variety of ways, including having a number of buildings, statues, and monuments dedicated to her memory.

Amelia Earhart was a trailblazer who pushed the boundaries of aviation and championed women’s rights. Her courage and ambition made her an inspiration to people around the world, and her legacy continues to live on.
