Famed pilot Amelia Earhart was a Zonta member. She advocated for women to grow their economic independence, and that women had opportunities in applied science and engineering, particularly in aviation. Although greatly outnumbered by men in the industry, she hoped that women would share with men the joy of scientific development and make impossible dreams a reality.
