Rosie The Riveter Trust - Richmond CA

As the U.S. faced a new and daunting challenge of global war in the 1940s, people on the home front came together as never before. The stories of their struggles, which broke barriers and shaped many of today’s best social innovations, charted a path for a new vision today.

Rosie the Riveter is a reminder to all of us to try new things, test our limits, and believe in ourselves and others. These tales of dedication and courage can inspire us!
