Rosie the Riveter Day Becomes A Reality Thanks to Marin County ‘Rosie’ – March 20, 2017

A Marin County Rosie the Riveter is looking to get national recognition for her and MILLIONS of other women who worked during the war effort of World War Two.

During World War Two, women became vital wartime workers, filling jobs traditionally held by men. Collectively they became known as “Rosie the Riveter.” And now for the first time, there will be a national holiday recognizing the work of these women… But only for this year. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports a Marin County ‘Rosie’ is behind the effort to get the holiday on the calendar every year.
