Program Title ROSIE THE RIVETER: Working for Victory on the Home Front
Character Name Rosie the Riveter
 
Program Description The poster of Rosie the Riveter might be familiar to you – but just who is that woman in the red polka-dotted bandana? Rosie was a symbol for the more than six million women who joined the work force during World War II - women who riveted together planes, built bombs, lead symphony orchestras, were welders and machinists, police officers and cab drivers. Rosie personified the young mothers who left their homes and farms and traveled to work in the factories when many of the men in America had enlisted in the military to help defend the country. For many women, it was the first time in their lives they had earned a salary. They developed a camaraderie with their co-workers and were proud of their efforts as they worked for victory on the home front.
