This Month's Discussion Selection
by Keith O’Brien
Between the world wars, no sport was more popular, or more dangerous, than airplane racing. Thousands of fans flocked to multi-day events, and cities vied to host them. The male pilots were hailed as dashing heroes who cheerfully stared death in the face. Female pilots were more often ridiculed than praised for what the press portrayed as silly efforts to horn in on a manly pursuit. Fly Girls recounts how a cadre of women banded together to break the original glass ceiling.
