However, Deborah Douglas offers evidence that women of talent and persistence are making dramatic inroad into all fields of aviation. Her powerful story offers assurance to every young girl that only the imagination, not the sky, is the limit. ―Gene Nora Jessen, author of The Powder Puff Derby of 1929. An interesting and compelling read about awe-inspiring women who pursued their passion against imposing odds and often with extreme sacrifice. Provides a thorough analysis of the barriers women had to overcome in aviation, even in roles more socially acceptable than pilot, astronaut, or air-traffic controller.

Women have been involved in aviation from the beginnings of both lighter-than air travel and as airplanes, helicopters and space travel were developed. Women pilots were also called "aviatrices" (singular: "aviatrix"). Women have been flying powered aircraft since 1908; prior to 1970, however, most were restricted to working privately or in support roles in the aviation industry. Aviation also allowed women to "travel alone on unprecedented journeys.
