The American Rosie MOVEMENT
The American Rosie MOVEMENT
The American Rosie Movement is an ideal to protect the legacy of the Rosies to ensure America is pulling together to continue providing quality work, patriotism and cooperation, just like the Rosies.
"Thanks! Plain and Simple" was founded by Anne Montague. Anne wanted to acknowledge the Rosies for their legacy and significant contributions during World War II. "Rosie the Riveter" was a cultural icon of World War II, representing the women who worked in factories, shipyards, aircraft depots, and any male traditional role during the War.
You can join us in bringing America together!
Our organization works tirelessly to provide quality work for the American Rosie Movement. This document was written by Anne Montague, the founder and Executive Director of "Thanks! Plain and Simple" so that everyone may be able to see just what the American Rosie Movement is about and so that others may be inspired to join us in our cause.
"My name is Kathy Kremnitzer and I had the pleasure of working with Anne Montague and Thanks! Plain and Simple a few years ago by helping to establish a Rosie the Riveter bluebird trail in Brunswick, Maryland. In conjunction with the Maryland Bluebird Society, a trail of 18 nestboxes was sited throughout the small city. Anne was wonderful to work with and her devotion to honoring these amazing and strong women was inspiring. I continue to monitor the nestboxes on this trail and Rosie legacy every week during bluebird nesting season."
"Very impressed with Ann Montague and the Rosie’s I’ve been fortunate to meet. As a high school teacher, I think it is so important for today’s young people to know about the amazing contributions these women made in securing our freedom. After ringing the bells with with the Massachusetts chapter over Labor Day weekend, I shared the experience w/ my students. In this age of division within our country, they were inspired by the fact that diverse populations of women from around the country left home and boarded buses to work in factories and answer a call to action. The Rosie’s have much to teach us about the true meaning of serving our country, and putting differences aside for a greater cause."
"Oh my goodness, this is such an amazing non-profit. Anne, the principal of this group works tirelessly, devoting every bit of time, love & money she has to making sure that the Rosies are not forgotten. My mother is one of the women she has supported & that effort has meant the world to our family.
If you're looking for a different non-profit, where every penny of your funds goes to supporting people & maintaining an important part of history (as opposed to being eaten up by "administrative fees"), please consider this group. I think you'll be glad you did."
"I manage a national women's initiative for women in manufacturing, and Thanks has been a great partner, and connected us with real Rosie the Riveter, Anna Hess. She has been an inspiration and, and connecting with her was easy through Anne."
