Today is Amelia Earthart’s 113th birthday! The woman spearheaded women’s rights and their roles outside of the home. Four years before her famous disappearance, Amelia had her palm analyzed by then famous astrologist┬áNellie Simmons Meier. View Amelia’s palm print and Nellie’s interpretation at the Library of Congress online!

“One of my favorite phobias is that girls, especially those whose tastes aren’t routine, often don’t get a fair break… It has come down through the generations, an inheritance of age-old customs which produced the corollary that women are bred to timidity.” – Amelia Earthart
