Who could “bring home the bacon and fry it up too?” Rosie the Riveter — that’s who!

Although many people know the wartime “Rosie” image, as well as the fact that women took on demanding non-traditional jobs, the multi-faceted role that women played during World War II is often forgotten.

Rosie The Riveter Trust is producing a broadcast-quality documentary on the life and experiences of Ranger Betty Reid Soskin: 

Capture A Legacy from ConvergenceMedia Productions on Vimeo.

A regional, national and international legend, Betty Soskin captures and tells the story of the African American experience from World War II until the present in a stunning and elegant way.
