History Film Forums Present: Fly with Me
Click on this link to see the trailer.
The History Film Forum at the National Museum of American History, American Experience PBS, and the National Air and Space Museum present Fly With Me. This new documentary from Sarah Colt and Helen Dobrowski tells the story of the pioneering young women who became flight attendants at a time when single women were unable to order a drink, eat alone in a restaurant, own a credit card or get a prescription for birth control. Becoming a “stewardess,” as they were called, offered unheard-of opportunities for travel, glamour, adventure, and independence. Although maligned as feminist sellouts, these women were on the frontlines of the battle to assert gender equality and transform the workplace. Featuring firsthand accounts, personal stories and a rich archival record, the film tells the lively and important but neglected history of the women who changed the world while flying it.
