I received an email from Sophia, one of the three 8th grade young ladies who interviewed Dusty and me regarding their National History Day school project. She said “My group and I are so pleased to tell you that our project has won first place at the National History Day competition. This is the highest award to receive in the competition, and we are extremely honored. We are so grateful for all the help we received from you and Dusty. We could not have made it to this point without you two.” Dusty and I are so proud of Sophia, Kate and Kelly and heartily congratulate them! Their project chronicles flight attendants struggles against sexism and discrimination with an emphasis on their fight for fairness and equality in the 60s and 70s. Dusty’s stories and videos figure prominently in their discussion. Their conclusion reminds us that “Although the flight attendants…paved the way for feminism in the workforce, women still have a long road ahead of them on the path to gender equality.” That is also one of the themes of my book about Dusty who stood up for women’s rights throughout her 44-year career as a flight attendant and continues to do so today.
