Nita Eggers and Yvonne Fasold, Lambda Chapter
"Rosie the Riveters:" Women Workers of World War II
A photo of Yvonne Fasold (Lambda/3) as a “Rosebud” with a wonderful Rosie from Albany, Nita Eggers.
It is delightful to see the iconic “Rosie the Riveter” pose as part of our theme “Empowering Independence.” People of all ages recognize the pose and think, as an 8-year-old girl explained to me, “Strong, independent women.” This describes my mother, who was a welder in Tacoma during the war. As a member of the American Rosie the Riveter Associ- ation (ARRA), I have been personally inspired by these women, and definitely find them strong in every way and very independent!
Did you know that over 6,000,000 women joined our work force to help win World War II? Come to this session and I will tell you the stories of some of these women, share the ways ARRA is working to honor them, preserve their legacy, and provide materials for further exploration. (This includes books for sale for $20.00. Each book is a collection of 100 Rosie stories.) I look forward to sharing living history with you!
