Washington, D.C.- To kick off Women’s History Month, a bicameral group of bipartisan lawmakers led by Representatives Jared Huffman (D-CA), Jackie Speier (D-CA), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), along with Senators Bob Casey (D-PA), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Christopher Coons (D-DE) and 53 other members of Congress, introduced a Congressional Resolution to designate March 21st, 2017, as ‘National Rosie the Riveter Day,’ a national day of recognition for the millions of women who supported the war effort on the home front during World War II.
The ‘National Rosie the Riveter Day’ would honor the vital contributions that were made by countless American women of all backgrounds during World War II who, with millions of American men deployed overseas, joined the workforce in increasing numbers and took on new roles previously held by men.
