Why should I know Amelia Earhart?

Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean in a time were women were supposed to do little more than the dishes and changing diapers. Needless to say she was a member of the National Woman's Party and a supporter of equal rights for men and women. Af if she wasn't yet a legend during her life, she decided to disappear from the surface of the earth in 1937. In the movie Night at the Museum she is played by her nearly namesake, actress Amy Adams.
