This is the untold story of the women military aviators of the 1970s and 1980s who kicked open the door to fly in combat in 1993&&&8212;along with the story of the women who paved the way before them.

In 1993, U.S. women earned the right to fly in combat, but the full story of how it happened is largely unknown. From the first women in the military in World War II to the final push in the 1990s, The Fly Girls Revolt chronicles the actions of a band of women who overcame decades of discrimination and prevailed against bureaucrats, chauvinists, anti-feminists, and even other military women.

Drawing on extensive research, interviews with women who served in the 1970s and 1980s, and her personal experiences in the Air Force, Eileen Bjorkman weaves together a riveting tale of the women who fought for the right to enter combat and be treated as equal partners in the U.S. military.

Although the military had begun training women as aviators in 1973, by a law of Congress they could not fly in harm’s way. Time and again when a woman graduated at the top of her pilot training class, a less-qualified male pilot was sent to fly a combat aircraft in her place.

Most of the women who fought for change between World War II and today would never fly in combat themselves, but they earned their places in history by strengthening the U.S. military and ensuring future women would not be denied opportunities solely because of their sex. The Fly Girls Revolt is their story.

The Fly Girls Revolt plugs long-standing gaps both in the history of women in flight and in American military history. Written with passion, insight, and the perspective only an insider can bring, it furnishes heretofore missing background and detail that overturns much of the conventional wisdom of how women won their own right to fly and fight. Filled with memorable quotes and anecdotes from the women themselves, this book is certain to be a go-to reference for years to come. Eileen Bjorkman, who lived much of the history that she writes, has given her readers a rare treasure.”
