The Final Hours:
Amelia Earhart's Last Flight

In the 1930s, Amelia Earhart was one of the most famous women in the world, and then suddenly she was gone, having disappeared over the South Pacific. The remarkable aviator, the first woman to fly nonstop across the Atlantic, had embarked on a hugely ambitious journey, a flight around the world at the Equator.

This documentary follows a team who restored a Lockheed airplane similar to Earhart's and flew it on the same route.... This production makes it clear just how difficult Earhart's last journey truly was, and details about her trouble-plagued voyage naturally give rise to speculation about where and how she and her navigator disappeared.

Still Missing




Still Missing:
Amelia Earhart and the
Search for Modern Feminism

by Susan Ware

A well-argued case that gives feminist substance to Amelia Earhart's firm place in the national pantheon. Ware contends that, in her roles as aviator, teacher, author, wife, and media personality, Earhart personified the ill-defined feminism of the 1920's and 30's.
Ware places it firmly in the context of the era, when the organized struggle for women's equality had given way to what she calls ``liberal feminism,'' the celebration of individual achievement.
