The Rosie the Riveter Movement

Creating projects that pull America together

Act Now

Do what Rosies did.

Work fast. Work well. Work with others to do what need to be done.

    Seize this brief moment in America to find and include at least one Rosie to:
  • Be sure her story is captured and shared.
  • Unite with others to be part of the American Rosie Movement
  • Help make the Rosie Movement a lasting, positive force for us all.

Remember, Rosies haven‘t been told that what they did and still do is important!

Your Job:

  • Tell leaders America needs:
    • A new Rosie the Riveter postage stamp.
    • More bridges, roads and buildings named, “Rosie the Riveter”
    • More technical training for women, to fill workforce gaps
    • Rosie parks and monuments, designed with the help of Rosies
    • Community gardens that include the history of Victory Gardens
    • Projects that tell about Rosies and improve your community
    • Ways for Rosies and the people Allied Nations that were occupied know each other
    • The US Park Services to hold more Ring Bells for Rosies events (Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Park in CA, the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, etc.)
    • To educate Rosies about what the importance of what they did and are still doing.
    • To act immediately - Rosies are a disappearing treasure.

    We have done work toward most of these tasks, but . . .

    It takes all of us pulling together to make a strong, lasting impact.

  • Find a Rosie and Work with Her:
      People often want to “do something” to honor Rosies, but they don’t know how to start. “Thanks!” and our partners want to help.
    • Some ways we have created for you to help are:
      • Questions and procedures you can follow to interview Rosies and share their stories. Email us for a copy.
      • Ways you can search for Rosies.
    • Some projects we’ve done with Rosies that you can do are:
      • Ring a Bell for Rosies (click here)
      • Interview her, then introduce her to groups, schools, etc.
      • Make a scrapbook of her, from WWII to now, and share it.
      • Make a bracelet from an old necklace and ask her to wear it every day.
      • Invite someone from an Allied Nation who knows about WWII to talk with a Rosie. Get photos, and audio or video.
      • Get Rosies together, and let them learn from each other.

In this PDF (2MB) are projects we did before 2014 with Rosies. Do at least one in your community, brag about them, tell your leaders, show them to us so that we can pull together to show what Americans are doing.
