Dinner w/ a Slice of History : WW2 Women in Aviation, Cleveland, OH

Share on:

International Women's Air Space Museum Burke Lakefront Airport (KBKL), Cleveland, OH

The International Women's Air Space Museum IWASM is pleased to announce the return of Dinner with a Slice of History, a program made possible through a Cuyahoga Arts and Culture CAC grant.

During the Second World War, the Soviet Union and United States established segregated organizations for the purpose of recruiting and training women for aviation duties. In both nations, it was individuals, rather than the military establishment, who proposed and developed plans for the use of women aviators. The women who spearheaded those efforts had dramatically different leadership styles, from Marina Raskova's quiet, businesslike, and approachable character, to Jacqueline Cochran's brash, forceful, and sometimes antagonistic nature. Yet they employed strikingly similar methods to achieve their goals.
In this presentation, Professor Reina Pennington will examine the parallels and differences in the lives and achievements of these two remarkable women. Pennington is a former Air Force intelligence officer she served as a Soviet analyst with F-4 and F-16 fighter squadrons, the Aggressor Squadrons, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the Alaskan Air Command. She is the author of Wings, Women and War: Soviet Airwomen in World War II Combat, and is presently working on a book entitled What Russia Can Teach Us About War.
Registration is required prior to the event.
