Women from WWII needed
The American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during WWII to acknowledge them and have their stories placed in the organization’s archives.
This organization is a patriotic/nonprofit organization with the purpose of recognizing and preserving the history and legacy of working women during WWII.
Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, plant inspectors, seamstresses and ordnance workers as well as many other jobs. These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told.
If you are a woman, or descendant of a woman, who worked during WWII, or if you are just interested in more information, go to www.rosietheriveter.net, call 1-888-557-6743 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
