  • "The iconic Rosie the Riveter image and the phrase ‘We Can Do It’ continues to inspire generations of young women across America. But Rosie is more than an inspirational poster girl. Rosie embodied the women in our country who answered the call to action in World War II by providing the weaponry and ammunition that literally ended the war."

    — CA Rep. Jackie Speier

  • "Cause I’m a Rosie’s Girl/in my blossomed world/learning who I am/ while I am a little girl/trying new things/Wouldn’t have known how, I see/that I am more than what you see/when you look at me/…"

    — Rosie’s Girls Song

  • "War and World War II…did encourage questioning…the domestic circumstances of the war fostered the roots of the civil rights movement and the women's rights movement…Many women who lived through World War II came to want different lives for their daughters."

    — Ranger Betty Reid Soskin

  • "Without us, there would have been no spring in 1945."

  • Rosie Rally Home Front Festival 2018

    Save the Date: August 11, 2018 - Rosie Rally Home Front Festival

    Don’t miss this year’s Rosie Rally Home Front Festival! Once again, on August 11th, we will gather to celebrate the legacy of Rosie the Riveter, an icon for women across the world.

    Join us at this free and family-friendly event for fun, festivities, great food, costume contests, dancing and more!

    This year, instead of breaking the Guinness record, we encourage everyone to update Rosie or represent home front occupations in creative ways, or to come in traditional garb to join the largest Rosie celebration and festival yet! This year’s event will honor original WWII Rosies and home front workers and celebrate the ordinary people from many backgrounds, races and communities across the U.S. who stepped up to extraordinary challenges during WWII.
