What a wonderful creation of a book! I also used to be a flight attendant. Victoria absolutely nailed it! The deep dedication and passion we "stewardesses" have for flying. Also, she researched for 10 years the historical changes that took place in the role of the stewardess between World War II and up to the early seventies. She captured the soul of the "Jet Sex (gender)" role in society and the leader of the Women's Equal Right's Movement. Exciting comprehensive view of this American icon! I crid when I read it....it was so moving.

This book was a fabulous read.  It brought back the not so good old days re women's rights,  also the great memories of so much.  In no other profession in those days could a 22 year old female recent  college graduate have gone so many places, met so many people, and had such a great time, while earning what  (at that time) was a decent salary.   We weren't the sex objects the airlines tried to portray us, and were certainly on the forefront of the women's  movement.  Some of the first suits under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act were brought by "stewardesses" and their union.
