Great Lives Series: Rosie the Riveter
Norman Rockwell's Rosie the Riveter poster encouraged women to roll up their sleeves and get on the job in factories to make munitions and equipment to supply American troops in World War II.
On Tuesday, March 30, 2010, Emily Yellin, author of Our Mothers' War: American Women at Home and at the Front During World War II, will give a talk on women in wartime. The lecture, part of the University's Great Lives series, is free and open to the public. For more information on the women who worked in many roles for Allied victory, check out this list of materials recommended by the reference staff of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library.
