Wouldn’t a Rally of Rosie the Riveters Be Great to See?

Post #86. Rosie’s Daughters: The “First Woman To” Generation Tells Its Story by Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett

A Roomful of Rosie’s … Including You!

The “We Can Do It!” poster, portraying a strong, empowered, courageous woman, continues to be popular and speaks to all women. The Rosie the Riveter Trust and the Yankee Air Museum hold annual events featuring this woman we now all call Rosie the Riveter. These two organizations have a friendly annual event competition, each striving to hold (or break, depending on your point of view) the Guinness World Record for the Most Rosie’s Gathered in One Place.

The photos are fun to see, but wouldn’t it be even better if you could participate. The Rosie the Riveter Trust has recently concluded their event in Richmond, California. And on Saturday October 14, the Yankee Air Museum — Willow Run Bomber Plant in Ypsilanti, Michigan, “will attempt to set a brand new World Record for the Most Rosie the Riveters. … The reason we are gathering at Willow Run to set a World Record is to support the Yankee Air Museum’s effort to save, preserve, and renovate Rosie’s historic World War II-era Willow Run Bomber Plant near Ypsilanti, Michigan.”

Why Emphsize Rosie the Riveter?
Rosie Rallies are great and help to support worthwhile organizations who feature the importance of women during WW2. And, of course, the Guinness bragging rights are nice. Donning a Rosie the Riveter costume is fabulous and fun. Hosting your own “We Can Do It!” Party is a terrific idea.

…But this is about something bigger. This is about passing on the message of strength, courage, and empowerment to the next generation of women while thanking all the women who have come before us to open doors.
