Today we tip our hats to every Rosy The Riveter, whether she’s living or passed into The Great Adventure.
These women – millions of them – stepped up during World War II to do the jobs of men fighting the war. They toiled as ambulance and truck drivers, riveters, welders, munitions plant laborers and farmers.
At last they have their own national day of recognition – March 21. There aren’t many of them left to celebrate, so when you meet one, join us in thanking her.
Many, if not most of these gals, were in their teens when they took on heavy and often dangerous work. And we’d bet our houses not one of them ever asked for a “trigger warning” or a “safe space.”
