Thanks! Plain and Simple made a documentary film on WV Rosie the Riveters “We Pull Together: Rosie the Riveters, Then and Now” premiered in June 2011. It includes 31 Rosies who worked across the USA during World War II in defense, often exacting, hard labor to build airplanes, ships and do other jobs that had been considered “man’s work” until then.

One of our organization’s major goals and tasks is to preserve Rosies’ history. We interview living Rosie the Riveters and share the material with multiple libraries and museums across the country and abroad.
Interviews are mainly audio, although some include video. Most of them are transcribed. Please contact us if you’d like to request our collection or individual interviews.
|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.
