Hazel Ying Lee 李月英 (1912-1944), a native of Portland, Oregon, took her first flight in 1932 at the age of 19. She joined the Chinese Flying Club of Portland and in that same year, received her pilot’s license, becoming one of the first Chinese American women to do so, and among the 1% of American pilots who were women. Following the Japanese attack on China in 1933, Lee traveled to China and volunteered to serve in the Chinese Air Force. As the Air Force did not accept women pilots, Lee settled in Canton and took a job flying for a private airline, before returning to the United States in 1938. In 1943 Lee joined the Women Airforce Service Pilots (“WASP”) which was created in an effort to sustain the war effort and overcome the shortage of male pilots at home. She became the first Chinese American women to fly fighter planes for the U.S. Army Air Forces. Lee was killed in a flying accident at Great Falls, Montana on November 23, 1944, while ferrying a P-63 from Buffalo, New York.

Suck it.

I drafted the following ridiculous list of tags:

#I know this is #adorable #but I think I might be overreacting #because I don’t even know who the fiercest person in this picture is #and yet I am experiencing near-lethal happiness levels #who is this woman?! #I love her #mystery badass in a (p)leather skirt 

…before I learned that she’s Joan Winston, organizer of the first Trek conventions. According to Wikipedia, she “was able to secure Roddenberry’s attendance at the first convention, and she also arranged for tapes of 15 episodes, a blooper reel, and a truck of space memorabilia from NASA.”
WHAT
"A TRUCK OF SPACE MEMORABILIA"
THAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PHRASE I’VE EVER HEARD 
She seems so awesome and I am in love with her for being a badass sci-fi lady and also just really happy for her that after all that work she got to have a) this experience and b) a photograph of it. (And also c) A TRUCK OF SPACE MEMORABILIA)

wowee

Again, sneering fanboys - look how women were RUNNING THE FANDOM SHOW way before you were a sperm-heading-toward-an-egg.

Joan Winston! I read her book! I loved her book. This picture makes me incredibly happy.

HBIC


Sometimes I have trouble deciding where to post things. This is one I want to post in ALL THE PLACES BECAUSE IT’S AMAZING.

“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
