Happy Amelia Earhart Day! Been reading about her and she is quite the bad ass so of course all I ever learned about her was that she died…..
“I have never lived more than four years in any one place and always have to ask ‘Which one?’ when a stranger greets me by saying, ‘I’m from your home town’.” -Amelia Earhart 
“I can think of lots of things worse than never getting married, and one of the worst is being married to a man who tied you down.”-Amelia Earhart 
“I believe that a girl should not do what she thinks she should do, but should find out through experience what she wants to do.” - Amelia Earhart
“I think I may not ever be able to see marriage except as a cage until I am unfit to work or fly or be active – and of course I wouldn’t be desirable then.” - Amelia Earhart
“As a matter of fact, I know a great many boys who should be making pies – and a great many girls who would be better off in manual training. There is no reason why a woman can’t hold any position in aviation providing she can overcome prejudices and show ability.” - Amelia Earhart
“I want to be free.” - Amelia Earhart
“I understand the danger, I can handle it.” - Amelia Earhart
“If I do not do a good job it will not be because the plane and motor are not excellent nor because women cannot fly.” - Amelia Earhart
“The woman who can create her own job is the woman who will win fame and fortune.” - Amelia Earhart
“Never do things others can do and will do, if there are things others cannot do or will not do.” - Amelia Earhart
She also was a lady who did not feel comfortable in marriage and never had children….
For a while Earhart was engaged to Samuel Chapman, a chemical engineer from Boston, breaking off her engagement on November 23, 1928.[68] During the same period, Earhart and Putnam had spent a great deal of time together, leading to intimacy. George P. Putnam, who was known as GP, was divorced in 1929 and sought out Earhart, proposing to her six times before she finally agreed.[N 6] After substantial hesitation on her part, they married on February 7, 1931, in Putnam’s mother’s house in Noank, Connecticut. Earhart referred to her marriage as a “partnership” with “dual control.” In a letter written to Putnam and hand delivered to him on the day of the wedding, she wrote, “I want you to understand I shall not hold you to any midaevil [sic] code of faithfulness to me nor shall I consider myself bound to you similarly.”[N 7][71][72]
 Earhart’s ideas on marriage were liberal for the time as she believed in equal responsibilities for both “breadwinners” and pointedly kept her own name rather than being referred to as Mrs. Putnam. When The New York Times, per the rules of its stylebook, insisted on referring to her as Mrs. Putnam, she laughed it off.
