Stand with Women

Post #88. Rosie’s Daughters: The “First Woman To” Generation Tells Its Story by Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett

Over the past 10 years, Kendra and I have talked with women about their life experiences, we’ve coached women who wanted to write their memoirs, and we’ve developed products as an outgrowth of the collective memoir we wrote about women born during WW2 — women who are often referred to as the “First Woman To” Generation.

So many of the stories we hear are intertwined with stories of abuse and sexual harassment in all its forms–from family members, boyfriends, husbands, employers, co-workers, etc. These are individual stories until there becomes a movement, a public statement from so many women that their stories become a collective story. There will be progress and there will be setbacks to bring about change, to stop the abuse and harassment. But no matter what, we Stand with Women.

Kendra and I have a much longer history of involvement in women’s issues than the past 10 years–more than 80 years if you combine them. And while we anticipate helping women at many levels in the coming years, we’ve decided that one thing we can do right now is to create a series of products that will allow all of us to show we support strong, courageous, empowered women…much as we have done with our Rosie the Riveter line of products.

We will soon be announcing the opening our of STAND WITH WOMEN store on etsy. This is an outgrowth of our years of involvement in women’s issues. Although our store isn’t officially open, we are posting a few products as specials. We are currently designing new enamel pins, socks, and t-shirts.

If you have a favorite feminist quote, or your own statement that you would like us to consider for our line of t-shirts, please send us an email at: Matilda(at)RosiesDaughters(dot)com. Or, you can put your quote in the Comment box at the end of this post.

While we are complete our design work, we thought you might be interested in some specials based on our “We Can Do It!” Rosie the Riveter product line. I’ve listed them below. You will notice that each of these has a price lower than on our RosiesLegacyGear etsy store. We’ve done this to celebrate our soon-to-be-official Stand With Women store.

(1) A special on 4 “We Can Do It!” FEMINIST MUGS that is 60% OFF. These are fabulous to use or to give.


(2) A 25% OFF offer on our “We Can Do It!” socks. These are the ones we call Rosie’s Toesies. I don’t know how long we’ll continue this low price, so you might want to go check them out. They make great stocking stuffers and Secret Santa gifts.


(3) Our retro style Rosie the Riveter AUTHENTIC PIN lets you show the world you are a strong, independent, empowered woman. In celebration of the anticipated opening of our STAND WITH WOMEN Etsy store, we are offering this pin at a 50% DISCOUNT for a limited time. We continue to sell it at its regular price on our RosiesLegacyGear etsy store. So this is just a special for visiting our soon to be opened store.


We hope you’ll share our Stand With Women news with your friends and family and join us today in celebrating Rosie the Riveter and all the strong, courageous, empowered women everywhere.
