They Broke the Glass Ceiling and Empowered Others to Do the Same

The world has a long way to go when it comes to ensuring equal participation, endowments, and voice for women. Since gender biases are deeply entrenched in many of the world’s cultures, eliminating them may sometimes seem impossible.

However, several American women had the courage and integrity to break down gender stereotypes and gain the respect of men. These women made valuable contributions to our nation’s social, economic, cultural, and political arenas. Their work and achievements changed the course of our nation’s history.

In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th, Veteran Car Donations puts the spotlight on three female American icons who broke the glass ceiling and empowered others to do the same.

  1. Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart was a trailblazing American pilot who broke gender barriers and aviation records. The aviatrix became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1937, Earhart attempted to become the first woman to circumnavigate the globe. However, her plane tragically disappeared somewhere over the central Pacific Ocean and her body was never found.

  1. Rosa Parks

In 1955, an African American seamstress named Rosa Parks stood up for her rights by refusing to give up her seat to a white passenger on a Montgomery, Alabama bus. While her act of defiance led to her immediate arrest for violating Alabama’s segregation laws, it led to the Montgomery bus boycott that went on for more than a year. This protest campaign against racial segregation sparked the civil rights movement in the United States.

  1. Hedy Lamarr

American actress Hedy Lamarr is famous not only for her beauty but for inventing the technology behind Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Lamarr helped develop a technique for disguising radio transmissions by making the signal jump between different channels in a prearranged pattern. She did this to help fight Nazis during World War II. Although the U.S. Navy didn’t pay much attention to her invention at that time, her work became the precursor to wireless technologies including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
