On this day in 1937…

Today is the anniversary of Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Electra plane vanishing in the Pacific Ocean. Being an aviation fan (and having taking flying lessons in the past) I am a Earhart fan. While she was not a great pilot, she was a great promoter of aviation and women’s flying (plus she even had her own clothing line, wrote articles and books, etc).

A company called Girls Explore http://www.girls-explore.com/ has its own Amelia Earhart doll. It comes with a book and working compass (haha…I guess so that you will never get lost when flying over the Pacific).

You can also buy a Bess Coleman Doll, Mary Cassatt Doll, Harriet Tubman, etc. They also have posters and books for sale on other women who are positive role models.
