Let women fly!

The woman who can create her own job is the woman who will win fame and fortune.

The rise and rise of the aviatrix

In 1784, Elisabeth Thible became the first woman to fly, as a passenger in a hot air balloon. Almost 125 years later Thérèse Peltier circled the Military Square in Turin in an aircraft, becoming the first woman to fly solo in a heavier-than-air craft. And so the aviatrix, the contemporary term given to women who flew aircraft, was born.

There is no reason why the aeroplane should not open up a fruitful occupation for women. I see no reason they cannot realize handsome incomes.

In 1917, after the U.S. entry into WWI, aviatrix Ruth Law had fought for women to pilot aircraft in battle. When her campaign was unsuccessful, she published an article in Air Travel magazine with the title "Let Women Fly!" These are some of the many women who, like Law, continued to open a new territory for women, in the sky and on the earth.

 


 

Rosamosario's creative director and founder Danti celebrates with her Aviation Couture the female pioneers who created careers and inspired millions against the odds.


I lay no claim to advancing scientific data other than advancing flying knowledge. I can only say that I do it because I want to.
