Rosie the Riveter
Thursday, September 23, 2021, 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM
Registration is not Required
“Yes We Can” became the rallying cry for women in WWII. Answering their country’s call, women rolled up their sleeves and went to work wherever they were needed. When almost all able-bodied men went off to fight on the front lines, women took their place on the home front, serving as riveters, pilots, nurses, scientists and truck drivers. This program will focus on the “Rosies” and how the women’s work influenced the course of the war, and, conversely, how the war work affected the women’s lives. It also includes film clips of interviews with many of the Rosies.
Patricia DelGiorno has made an extensive study of women’s roles in War and has participated in World Wars I and II studies at Cambridge and Oxford Universities which she lectures and gives presentations on: In 2013 she completed a Master’s Thesis entitled “Crossing Borders - Women Secret Agents of Britain’s Special Operations Executive (SOE) in WWII.
