WOMEN IN THE AIR FORCE
FROM YESTERDAY INTO TOMORROW
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment which extended voting rights to women. The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force will honor women with a new exhibit highlighting their achievements in civilian and military aviation with emphasis on the U.S. Air Force and its predecessors.
The exhibit covers historical issues, changes in laws and attitudes, and women's contributions. Specific women and groups from all eras and various career fields are noted to emphasize the impact women have played in establishing women's current position in the Air Force.
