Rosie the Riveter Day



Come learn about Rosie the Riveter, a cultural icon of the United States, representing the American women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies. These women sometimes took entirely new jobs replacing the male workers who were in the military. Learn how Rosie the Riveter has evolved into a symbol of feminism and women's empowerment, then get glammed-up to take your own Rosie photo and get ready to jitterbug the night away!
