Rosie the Riveter Day

Join us as we celebrate Rosie the Riveter Day to recognize the 16,000,000 women who worked during World War II. These women, dubbed “Rosies” after the iconic Rosie the Riveter poster campaign used to recruit women into the wartime work force filling gaps left by men who had gone off to fight. They did everything from producing planes and munitions, as well as other equipment that proved vital to the war effort, to serving on ration boards, volunteering for the American Red Cross and driving trucks. Learn how Rosie has become a symbolism for women's empowerment then get glammed-up to take your own Rosie photo and get ready to jitterbug the night away!
