The amazing Amelia Earhart – the first female aviator to fly a solo transatlantic flight — is a feminist icon for many reasons, so I suppose it should come as no surprise that she had an incredibly modern view of marriage for the early 1900s. Earhart, who disappeared during a flight in 1937, wrote the above prenuptial letter to her future husband George Putnam, expressing her weariness of the institution itself, and then laying out her expectations for such a union which include a willingness to be monogam-ish well before Dan Savage coined the term, and a need for privacy and respect for her career aspirations. Very cool. [Feministing]
