It was a mans world up until 1941 when Pearl Harbor was bombed. It was Rosie the riveters who built the B-17s and the B-29. They found that the women were every bit as good at these jobs as men were, some of us were better. worked hard to promote Rosie.
Krier has had Congressman, Mike Fitzpatrick propose to make May 23rd National Rosie the Riveter Day. She is working on trying to get a statue of Rosie in the WW11 Memorial in Washington D.C. There were between 16 and 20 million women who went to work during the war. It is time for these amazing women to get due recognition.
Krie goes to different groups to tell the Rosie Stories. Some are really outstanding. Krier often said that "if it hadn't of been for Rosies role in WW11, we may be speaking German or Japanese today."
Someone wrote, "ROSIE THE RIVETER WAS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL RECRUITMENT TOOL IN AMERICAN HISTORY."
