A typical woman in the early 20th century unofficially had two choices in life:
Get married and have children and husband that makes a big chunk of the income.
Or gets a job. ( Nurse, Nanny, Elementary School Teacher,etc)
Life of a Typical Woman in the Early 20th Century
Born on July 24th, 1897 in Atchison, Kansas
As a child/teen Amelia was a tomboy and realized that she wanted to lead a life of adventure and not the life of a “typical woman.”
Amelia was an aviator from the age of 25-40. During this time she accomplished a bunch of “firsts"
Amelia also created a lot of records and even managed to break some of her own records
On February 7th, 1931 she married her friend and publisher George P. Putnam
And then... TRAGEDY STRUCK!!!!!
Some Firsts Include:
She was the first person to fly across the Atlantic as a passenger in 1928
She was the first person to make a solo flight across the USA in the same year
She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic in 1932
Some of Her Records Include:
Setting the women’s altitude record of 14,00 ft
Setting the women’s transcontinental speed record from Los Angeles, California to Newark, New Jersey in 1932
She then broke that record a year later
Amelia Earhart was one of the most influential women of the 20th century because she broke through gender barriers to become the first aviatrix.
In her passion for flying, Amelia Earhart collected a number of distance and altitude world records. But beyond her accomplishments as a pilot, she also wanted to make a statement about the role and worth of women. She dedicated much of her life to prove that, like men, women could excel in their chosen professions, and that they could have equal value.
