Being a stewardess in the 1960s during the glitzy golden age of travel seemed irresistible to thousands of women, but becoming one was no easy feat…and staying one was even harder. They had to adhere to strict weight requirements and dress code restrictions, and remain unmarried and childless until they were fired at the age of thirty-two. With big dreams and a desire to leave her small town, Patt Gibbs got accepted into American Airlines's coveted stewardess school in 1962, and several years later, she would begin doing everything in her power to shatter the same standards she once vehemently upheld. Alongside fellow stewardess and women's rights activist Tommie Hutto, the two sparked the rebellion that established working rights for all American women, both on land and 30,000 feet in the sky. This powerful true story is descriptive, vivid, and utterly inspiring. (HC)
