As a girl, Amelia Earhart aspired to a future that would take her beyond the family and medical problems of her younger years, as well as the restrictions imposed on her because she was female. Widely celebrated for her long-distance flights, her disappearance during a daring around-the-world flight in 1937 has been a source of intrigue for nearly 80 years. Earhart's life and career has provided inspiration to generations of young people.
