"Please know I am quite aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try like men have tried. When they fail, failure must be but a challenge to others."

Amelia Mary Earhart, daughter of Samuel Stanton Earhart & Amelia Otis Earhart was born in Atchison Kansas on July 24, 1897. Most of her life she was a pilot. She was the first woman pilot who crossed the Atlantic ocean in solo flight.
When, Amelia and her sister, Muriel, were young they used to climb on trees and slide on sleds down the mountain. She wasn't interest in airplanes. When she was 12 years old, it was discovered that her father was a drunk. After 5 years he got fired from his job. Her mother took them to live in Chicago at a friend's house.
At first Amelia was a nurse who helped hurt soldiers. After a while she started to get interested in airplanes and decided to be a pilot. She heard about someone who was looking for a woman to cross the Pacific ocean. in a plane. Amelia took the mission upon herself. George Palmer Putnam interviewed her for this position and became impressed with her and chose her for the flight. However, this was not what Amelia had in mind. On her first flight across the Atlantic she was only allowed to be a passenger and this made her angry and want to push women to achieve more in aviation. George escorted her all the way and eventually became her husband. He fought for her place in aviation and took care of her public relations.
With George's help she decided to do something no one has ever done in the world. She decided to fly with her navigator, Fred Noonan, around the world. On June 29 1937 they got to New Guinea. They already had flown 22,000 miles around the world. She cabled her last commissioned article to the Herald Tribune. Photos show her looking very tired and ill during her time at Lea. This was the last part of they journey, but they still had 7000 miles left to go and all of it would be over the Pacific Ocean. They planned to cross the Pacific with Honolulu as their final destination. The plane did have enough room to carry enough fuel for such a long journey, so they planned to stop on Howland Island. A U.S. Coast Guard ship was supposed to direct them to Howland Island and bring them fuel. Frequency and radio transmissions were weak in the area and the connections were not long enough to for the ship to figure out the exact location of Amelia’s airplane. Amelia sent her last transmission on 2 july 1937 and was never seen again.President Roosevelt authorized a search of 9 naval ships and 66 aircraft at an estimated cost of over $4 million
Amelia is an example to the world of having determination to achieve a goal even when it is difficult. She showed the world that women can learn and work in professions where men are and succeed! The world must remember and appreciate Amelia Earhart because of all she gave the world.

Interview



1. Tell us about your childhood.
I was born in Atchison in Kansas .My parents are "Edwin" and "Amy". My little sister is Muriel. When we were young we used to climb on trees and slide on sleds down the mountain. I wasn't interest in airplanes. When I was 12 years old, it was discovered that my father was a drunk. After 5 years he got fired from his job. My mom took us to live in Chicago at a friend's house
2. It seems like a hard childhood. How did you manage?
I didn’t' really have to manage because when it got hard my sister and I moved to our grandparents. We went to private schools and enjoyed many comforts of life.
3. What made you choose such dangerous profession?
I am quite aware of the hazards, but that's what motivated me. I do it because woman must try like man have tried!

5. How did you feel when you were a passenger on the flight across the Atlantic with Wilmer Stultz and Slim Gordon?
I was very angry that I got all the attention even though Slim and Gordon did everything. I was very angry because I wasn't allowed to do anything even though I have the ability to do it. I know that a woman can do everything like a man if she will get the right preparation for it. It made me angry because they just allowed me to sit on the plane and I wasn't allowed to help or to learn anything from the flight

I was interested in aviation and so was he. We both loved the outdoors, books, and sports. We came to depend on each other. Yet it was only friendship between us, or so I thought. At first, I didn't admit even to myself that I was in love.

I related to the marriage as a partnership. We had an open marriage without commitment. Before we got married I explained to George in a letter that I wanted him to understand that he is not committed to principles of loyalty to like in the Middle Ages, so I did not see myself connected to you him in a similar manner.

9. What happened on June 29 1937?
I related to the marriage as a partnership. We had an open marriage without commitment.

Speech



Dear ladies
We here tonight to speak about the situation of the woman in the world.
First I want to ask a question- how many women pilots do you see in the world? There are not many, are there? Why is it like that? Is this the ideal situation? Of course not! It has happened because women are educated to think that men are more capable! I know that if women would study the same profession they would succeed not less than men! And maybe even more!
I want to tell you a personal story that happened to me: When I was asked to join the flight crossing the ocean, I thought I would be the pilot. After a while I found out that they expected me to sit behind while at the same time men were piloting the airplane. They wanted it to seem like a woman can't fly across the ocean on her own, but rather, is only capable of being a passenger.
Since then I decided that I want to pass onto the women of the world this message: Don’t give in to anyone who doesn't believe in you. Never allow anyone to degrade yourself and yours abilities! Always know that this situation can be changed, and it up to us and our aspirations! Follow your dream and ignore the people who weakens you! Never stop believing in yourself!
Thank you you for listening.

How to write a rationale



In the rationale, you want to write about FIVE sentences explaining why you chose the subject you are researching. Give at least TWO different reasons.

You may begin by explaining that the class/ teacher chose to write about Women of Valor. We chose to write about Amelia Earhart because she is a role model for us, and she is a very special person and there's a lot to lorn from her.
became famous because She was the first woman pilot who crossed the Atlantic ocean in solo flight.
Write how you found out about this person ,and why you chose to research her.
When the teacher told about the work, that we need to choose a woman of valor, we had no idea who we are going to do about.
in the past, one of us saw a movie and her figure was in there. when the teacher told us aboat the work we start searching in the internet and suddenly the one who saw the movie, remembered Amelia figure. That way we choose her.
