||Tour Guide Talk: The Real Rosie the Riveter
At the start of World War II, women were needed to fill the jobs men left behind. The name “Rosie the Riveter” is first heard in song and then seen in Norman Rockwell’s powerful image. This icon has come to symbolize all women who helped win the war by working where needed. Visitors will hear the real life stories of women who say being a "Rosie" changed their lives, including Marilyn Monroe! Learn more during this 15-minute talk about these amazing women who have inspired generations of young women.
The Real Rosie the Riveter will take place Saturdays and Sundays in March at 11:45am and 1:45pm. Inquire at the Information Desk. This Tour Guide Talk is open to the public and free with the price of admission to the Museum. Tours are appropriate for ages 6 and up.
