Today people remember her most for her disappearance on the last leg of her round-the-world flight in 1937. But more than a record breaker or a ghost lost over the Pacific, Earhart was ambitious, driven, and strong at a time when all three of these traits were considered unfeminine. Earharts words and her example encouraged women to step beyond the narrow confines of their traditional roles.The Quotable Amelia Earhart brings together statements from a variety of sources and covers a wide range of topics, including Earharts flights and her opinions on politics, work, religion, and gender equality. This definitive resource provides a concise, documented collection of Earharts quotations so that her words, as well as her achievements, may inspire a new generation.
