The Rosie the Riveter Movement

Creating projects that pull America together

Act Now

We work with people like you and Rosie the Riveters to make sure that their contributions to the past, present, and future are a part of America's identity. We are launching the American Rosie Movement after 9 years of learning who the Rosies are and what people like you most want to do to help them tell their stories and make them known to the world. The following photos are work that we did between 2009 and 2014. Since then, we have expanded opportunities for Americans to find, interview, and get to know Rosie the Riveters. Please see International Work, and Awards for examples of work we have done since 2014.

We can't do all the work, so we guide people and places to be models for all of America.
