melia Earhart is best known for her feats as a pilot, but she was also a bold champion for gender equality. Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of Earhart’s disappearance, a new exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery will recognize her life and remarkable career with a special focus on her commitment to women’s rights and women in aviation. Earhart’s biography will be told through portraits, a selection of books and essays she wrote, a compelling audio and video kiosk, which includes first-hand footage of her 1932 flight, and other objects that tell more about her experiences—her pilot’s license and leather flying helmet. The one-room exhibition will be on view June 29 through May 27, 2013.
