In today’s modernized World there is no difference between men and women as they both deserve equal status and rights in society. However still, no one can change some people’s narrow mindsets and thus for them, few brave personalities stands and set an example to give them a bang on answer.
Recently to promote this sensitive issue of gender equality a Delta flight from Salt Lake City to Houston with all the women crew took 120 young girls to the NASA headquarters.
The fifth-annual WING flight (Women inspiring our Next Generation) was a part of International Girls in Aviation Day celebrations and carried passengers between 12 and 18 age group. The WING flight was launched in 2015 in an attempt to diversify male-dominated industries. Mainly to take them through the career industry which is associated with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) where not many ladies are seen.
“From nose to tail, the flight was planned and orchestrated exclusively by women — including the pilots flying the plane, ramp agents working on the ground, gate agents boarding the flight and women in the tower guiding the aircraft on its way out,” Delta wrote in a statement.

They also toured Nasa’s Mission Control Centre, Building 9, Johnson Space Center and Space Center Houston. The group, later on, was also introduced to a number of mentors from various other aviation workshops.
Immediately this news went viral and a lot of people applauded these ladies for doing such a great work.
