Talk about a life well lived. Jackie Cochran crammed several life-times worth into one. And who are young women offered as a role model nowadays -- Miley Cyrus? Give us a break.
A bit like saying in 1953 the only role model for young women was Marilyn Monroe. Give me a break.
Indeed. There are positive role models for young women today, just as there were negative ones for them in 1953 too.

Re: Coincidence?

The Cochran(e) surname might be a fictional familial association, or merely an allusion by the writer. When Christy Marx wrote the JEM television series (based on Hasbro's line of toys), she named the fictional Emmett Benton as an allusion to Dr. Stephen Benton, who developed rainbow holograms. (Emmett Benton created the holographic computer, Synergy.) No in-universe association is implied.
