Women's Firsts Display

May 20, 1932, Amelia Earhart took off from Harbor Grace, Newfoundland, for Europe. She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. This trip took place exactly five years after the first transatlantic solo flight by Charles Lindbergh.

To honor Amelia Earhart and other pioneer women, we pulled together facts and sources on some of the first achievements for women in western history.

Take a look at our display in the reference area!
