HERstory Speaks Lecture Series - Rosie Wins the War: The Story of Women’s Workplace Roles in WWII
Sunday, March 8, 2020
During WWII, as millions of men left for battle, American women stepped up to fill the void in building needed war materials. Dr. Catherine Forslund looks at women’s roles in wartime manufacturing including the problems recruiting them, the jobs they did, how most were summarily fired at the war’s end, and how that experience effected women’s employment ever after.
