Amelia Earhart broke record in her quest to prove that women could reach the same heights as their male counterparts in an era when the sky was seen as the exclusive province of males. When Earhart received her pilot’s license in 1923, she was just the 16th woman on earth to do so. Five years later, she shot to prominence as the first woman and the first person to fly across the Atlantic and Pacific seas simultaneously.

Amelia Earhart flew in defiance of existing attitudes, believing that women could be as daring as men in pursuing their aspirations and forging their place in the world. Earhart was a writer, speaker, poet, and vice-president of the aviation business at the time of her death, all while defying the norms of the day that defined the proper duties and activities of women.

In 1937, she undertook an around-the-world fly from Oakland to Hawaii, but on July 2, 1937, her plane crashed near Howland Island. After her probable death, Earhart was honored at the National Aviation Hall of Fame in 1968 and the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1973.
