PIERRE, South Dakota — The South Dakota State Historical Society is hosting a webcast that addresses the history of 1960s airline stewardesses.

The program sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution will be broadcast Sunday at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre.

"I was a Jet Set Stewardess" explains the evolution of the flight attendant through interviews and anecdotes. The webcast also explains how female flight attendants became icons for a generation and why the jet-set era opened new career opportunities for many women.

There is no fee to view the program, but visitors wanting to go into the museum's galleries must pay standard admission.
