|We’re helping community and national leaders participate in a movement to assure that Rosies’ legacy is part of America’s identity and consciousness. International awareness of the importance of Rosie to the free world and to using the strengths of women is helping Americans see the value in these women who are usually in their 90s and fading fast.|
Let us know if you want to be part of this important, far past-due recognition of Rosies.
