About the Event...
A World Premiere. In 2010 the W.A.S.P. were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal from Congress in recognition of their WWII flying service. Their existence deleted from American history books, the general public knows little about these courageous women who ferried warplanes for the U.S. Some of them are still with us to tell their stories. This is the story of seven women who trained with the Women Airforce Service Pilots in Sweetwater, Texas in 1944 who overcame personal and professional conflict as well as battling tremendous military and societal prejudice that believed women did not belong in a man’s world. Even though the program lasted only two years its influence encouraged future women to follow untraditional paths.
