Such Great Heights

"Mishaps in Fashion", is now showcasing "Iconic women in History". "Iconic Women in History" is going to be a series of posts that will highlight The Strong, The Independent, The Visionary woman that have changed or challenged our society. These women are true role models. I only hope my tiny posts will serve them justice in some way. Now Let's get on to Today's post.............

Amelia Earheart the "Lady of the Air"
 The first woman to win the Distinguished Flying cross. The first Woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. She inspired women to follow their dreams and pursue careers in the aviation field. She worked to support her desire to fly and paid for her aviation lessons by holding jobs such as a photographer, truck driver, and stenographer. 

Perhaps the most well known and most talked about fact regarding Amelia is the mystery surrounding her disappearance on her last flight. Although, there are many theories as to what occurred on her last flight the official theory is that due to a lack of gas or technical malfunction her plane went down somewhere in the pacific. Amelia, was a true visionary and a leader in the field of aviation for women. She didn't allow her gender to become an obstacle and will always be respected and revered for following her dreams.

 "Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others." A. Earheart
