It was the 1920s and people thought women were frail and weak. Amelia couldn't make her living as a pilot. So she was working as a social worker. Later a donor wanted to fund the first female trans Atlantic flight. But there was a catch. Amelia wouldn't get to actually fly the plane. She'd have to sit in the back like a sack of potatoes as she put it. And not only that the two male pilots were going to get paid, but she wouldn't get paid anything.
