  3. Background Amelia Earhart was born in Atchison, Kansas on July 24th, 1897. She attended a school in Pennsylvania as a young girl and eventually earned a degree at Columbia University. She learned to fly in California and made it a big part of her life a huge hobby of hers. Amelia was a settlement worker after she graduated college. Until William Stultz, who was an aviator who flew around the world, asked Amelia to accompany him. The first flight that they ever took was from Newfoundland to Wales. She became the first women to ever be on a transatlantic flight in history. Soon after this flight, Amelia decided to make flying her career, and stepping out of the boundaries farther than any woman has gone. Amelia is mainly known for her solo flights, she flew all around the world, but in 1937 she was declared missing after a national solo flight. She lost radio contact somewhere along the way near Howland Island over the Pacific Ocean and was announced dead in 1939. Although, her body is still yet to be discovered, and there is still no evidence that she died immediately, there was a raft on the aircraft that was never found, after locating the plane. I do not know the exact date, however, the speech was given in 1935 at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana. The purpose of this speech was to show women’s future in flying, how it would affect our nation, and basically show that girls can pretty much do anything a guy can do.

  6. SOAPStone- Subject Subject- • I think that the subject of this speech was to show how women are starting to become a larger part in our nation. • Another subject of the speech would be how women are benefiting from such new economic opportunities and fields of occupation. Examples From Speech- • “This modern world of science and invention is of particular interest to women, for the lives of women have been more affected by its new horizons than those of any other group.” - This quote shows how women are taking a particular interest in the fields of science. • “Not only has applied science decreased the toil in the home, but it has provided undreamed of economic opportunities for women. Today, millions of them are earning their living under conditions made possible only through a basically altered industrial system” - This quote shows exactly how being given more opportunities occupation wise has affected women financially and in the role of the U.S. society.

  7. SOAPStone- Occasion Occasion- • Amelia Earhart was giving this speech at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana to show the students how women have a huge role in the future, and in her expertise, flying. This speech was also radio broadcasted throughout America. However, this was not just directed towards women, but men as well. She’s trying to persuade the audience into thinking of aviation as an occupation. Examples From Speech: • “This modern world of science and invention…” • “Science has released them from much of the age-old drudgery connected with the process of living.” -I interpreted these two quotes for the occasion, because they are showing how much more modern things were in their day in time. (1935)

  8. SOAPStone- Audience Audience- • I think that the audience for this speech was particularly to the women, but also to the men. She was trying to make a point to the women that they should give new economic opportunities a shot, despite their gender. Also, she was trying to persuade people towards the science of aviation. -Examples From Speech- • “This modern world of science and invention is of particular interest to women, for the lives of women have been more affected by its new horizons than those of any other group.” -This quote shows how Amelia believes that science has really affected women, showing this speech is directed towards them. • Flying is perhaps the most dramatic of recent scientific attainment. -This quote is Amelia trying to persuade people towards the aviation occupation. By stating that it is one of the most dramatic scientific advancements ever known.

  9. SOAPStone- Purpose Purpose- • I think the purpose of Amelia Earhart giving this speech was to show America that women were becoming a better part of our future. • I also think that she was trying to show people the great adventures of flying, and maybe try to persuade people towards thinking of flying as a hobby and/or career path. Example From Speech- • “Among all the marvels of modern invention, that with which I am most concerned, is of course, air transportation. Flying is perhaps the most dramatic of recent scientific attainment.” • “Perhaps I'm prejudiced, but to me it seems that no other phase of modern progress contrives to maintain such a brimming measure of romance and beauty, coupled with utility as does aviation.” -In these two quotes Amelia talks about how she believes that aviation is one of the most important scientific advancements we’ve ever known.

  10. SOAPStone- Speaker Speaker- • The speaker of this was Amelia Earhart, who was the first woman to successfully attempt and fly over the pacific ocean in 1928. I think the reason Purdue University had here there to speak was because she was one of the first women to take such a risk, and to make the stepping stones for women today. Examples From Speech: • “I myself still fly a WASP motor which has carried me over the North Atlantic, part of the Pacific, to and from Mexico City and many times across this continent.” • “Among all the marvels of modern invention, that with which I am most concerned, is of course, air transportation.” -I think these two quotes really represent who she is as a speaker, she’s telling, and how she’s telling the audience the role she has as a women aviation flyer

  11. SOAPStone- Tone Tone- • In my opinion, the tone of this speech was: encouraging and hopeful. • I believe this is encouraging because she is trying to encourage women to get more involved in our society, and I believe that this speech has a hopeful tone because Amelia is hoping for a better future for women, and hoping that science will advance even more than it already has. Examples From Speech- • “Within itself, this industry embraces many of those scientific accomplishments which yesterday seemed fantastic impossibilities.” -This quote shows a hopeful tone because she is saying that she believes that science has made huge advancements, and she’s being hopeful that they will continue to make more achievements as time goes on.

  12. Major Premise • “In aviation, they are arbiters of whether or not their families shall fly, and as such , are a potent influence. And lastly, there is a place within the industry itself, for women who work. While still greatly outnumbered, they are finding more and more opportunities for employment in the ranks of this latest transportation medium. May I hope this movement will spread throughout all branches of applied science and industry and that women may come to share with men the joy of doing. Those can appreciate rewards most who have helped create.” -This paragraph in the speech shows the overall premise of the speech itself. Which is about women, and their economic opportunities. Also, air transportation and science itself.

  13. Analysis- Paraphrase • “Science has released them from much of the age-old drudgery connected with the process of living. Candle dipping, weaving and crude methods of manufacturing necessities are things of the past for an increasing majority. Today, light, heat and power may be obtained by pushing buttons and cunningly manufactured and appealing products of all the world are available at the housewife's door. Indeed, beyond that door she need not go, thanks to the miracles of modern communication and transportation.” -I think that this paragraph in the speech is discussing that due to technology advancements it has decreased the need for women’s role in the home, therefore, they should have more economic opportunities job wise.

  14. Analysis- Paraphrase • “The impetus of the sociological evolution of the last half century should be largely credited to those who have toiled in laboratories, and those who have translated into practical use the fruits of such labors. One hears a lament that a mechanized world would not be a pleasant one in which to live.” -In this quote, I think that Amelia is basically just thanking the people who spent countless hours in labs, coming up with new inventions. For they have made lives easier through technology.

  15. Ethos • “I myself still fly a WASP motor which has carried me over the North Atlantic, part of the Pacific, to and from Mexico City and many times across this continent.” -This quote shows Amelia’s credibility as a female flyer, by telling about some of her journeys across the Pacific; and to other countries.

  16. Pathos • “Although women as yet have not taken full advantage of its use and benefits, air travel is available to them as to men.” -This quote shows pathos because it was more of a slam towards women. She’s basically saying here “look, we’re just as good as men, why not take advantage of that?” Her goal here is to get the women fired up, and make them want to participate more.

  17. Logos • “And lastly, there is a place within the industry itself, for women who work.” -This quote is using logical appeal because basically what Amelia is trying to say is: if a woman can work, why not just work in the industrial field when she’s just as qualified as a man? It’s common sense. This quote really appealed to women.

  18. Repetition “This modern world of science and invention is of particular interest to women, for the lives of women have been more affected by its new horizons than those of any other group. Profound and stirring as have been accomplishments in the remoter fields of pure research, it is in the home that the applications of scientific achievement have perhaps been most far-reaching, and it is through changing conditions there that women have become the greatest beneficiaries in the modern scheme.” “Not only has applied science decreased the toil in the home, but it has provided undreamed of economic opportunities for women. Today, millions of them are earning their living under conditions made possible only through a basically altered industrial system. Probably no scientific development is more startling than the effect of this new and growing economic independence upon women themselves. When the history of our times is written, it must record as supremely significant the physical, psychic and social changes women have undergone in these exciting decades.” -In this speech, Amelia repeated the words “science, women” and she talked a lot about economic opportunity. I think this was to get the subject of the speech across.

  19. Phrasing/Meaning • “Profound and stirring as have been accomplishments in the remoter fields of pure research, it is in the home that the applications of scientific achievement have perhaps been most far-reaching, and it is through changing conditions there that women have become the greatest beneficiaries in the modern scheme.” -The meaning of this quote is basically saying that women are the greatest test subjects for the modern scheme of their time due to their role in the home. Due to the fact that things are getting more modern, however, they are not as much needed in the home as they were before.

  20. Powerful Lines • “The pilot when he is way above the earth at 200 miles an hour talks by radio telephone to ground stations or to other planes in the air. In thick weather he is guided by radio beam and receives detailed reports of conditions ahead gleaned through special instruments and new methods of meteorological calculations. He sits behind engines, the reliability of which measured by yardsticks of the past is all but unbelievable.” -To me this is a powerful line because this gives the audience a vivid image of what it would be like to be a pilot. • “May I hope this movement will spread throughout all branches of applied science and industry and that women may come to share with men the joy of doing. Those can appreciate rewards most who have helped create.” -In my opinion, this is a powerful line because Amelia is basically encouraging men and women to do what they want to do and not let anything stop them. Whether it be in science, industry or aviation.

  21. Literary Devices Used • “The pilot when he is way above the earth at 200 miles an hour talks by radio telephone to ground stations or to other planes in the air. In thick weather he is guided by radio beam and receives detailed reports of conditions ahead gleaned through special instruments and new methods of meteorological calculations. He sits behind engines, the reliability of which measured by yardsticks of the past is all but unbelievable.” -In this quote I believe that Amelia was using the literary device of allusion, indirectly referencing a pilot, to give the audience a mental image of what flying in an aircraft might be like.

  22. To Follow… • Soon after Amelia’s speech and her role in history, women became more involved in science and flying. This speech and her role in history was practically a stepping ground for other women to follow in to pursue their dreams. • 2 years after her speech was give, Earhart scheduled a international solo flight across the globe, eventually over the Pacific Ocean, Amelia lost radio contact with her station. It has been reported that her flight crashed somewhere near Howland Island and she was reported missing.
