"Amelia Earhart symbolizes modern woman’s invasion of the male world of daring action and adventure." I like this description.

A clothing and luggage designer? That's neat. I'd only ever heard about her flying.

I think the fact that she was never found adds to the legend of this remarkable woman. I loved Camile Paglia's quote about her in the story.
