It is astonishing how much Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP’s) contributed during WWII despite gender prejudice in the 1940s. They, and many other women in the war effort, did more to reach toward the “glass ceiling” than they were given credit for. By fulfilling a crucial role flying within the U.S., they allowed over a thousand male combat pilots to go fly overseas.

This piece is part of a series that I call Women of Courage. I want our daughters and granddaughters to know about the amazing contributions women have made to our world. I hope the people who look at my quilts become curious about these women and do their own research and reading. I would love to include more in our school curriculum about the women who have achieved so much in our country.
