Tiny Broadwick, Believe It or Not #Feminism

Georgia "Tiny" Broadwick was real and she didn't just jump once, she did it about a thousand times.  She consequently lived to be about ninety.  (WIKI:  Tiny Broadwick)

Maybe you think she's brave and / or crazy but there's more.  Check out the kit she used for the early jumps.

Repeating:  she lived to be almost ninety although how that possibly could have happened when she took risks like this is your guess.

Georgia Ann Thompson Broadwick (April 8, 1893 in Oxford, North Carolina – 1978 in California), or Georgia Broadwick, was an American pioneering parachutist. She was nicknamed 'Tiny', as she weighed only 85 pounds (39 kg) and was 5 feet (1.5 m) tall.


The Rockhouse cheerfully submits she represents prime time feisty.
