The sudden U.S. entry into World War II created an unprecedented demand for new workers. Notions of what was proper work for women changed overnight. In this film, five former “Rosies” movingly recall their histories working in Detroit, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco during the war. Their testimony is interwoven with rare archival recruitment films, stills, posters, ads and music from the period which contrast their experiences with the popular legend and mythology of Rosie the Riveter.

Shown at the Detroit Historical Museum. Running time: 65 minutes. Admission is FREE!
