Presentation in Hartland will highlight contributions of women in World War II

An event next week in Hartland will help celebrate Women’s History month with the Willow Run Chapter of the American Rosie the Riveter Association.

“Rosie the Riveter & Beyond: How Women Helped Win WWII” will be held on Thursday, March 16th from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Cromaine District Library in the Village Community Room.

Rosie, identified as a female factory worker with a red bandana, became a cultural icon in the United States representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies in place of men fighting overseas.

This dynamic and informative presentation will highlight the breadth of Rosie’s contributions in Michigan and beyond. The presenter, Jeannette Gutierrez, delves into the many contributions women made during World War II, including war production, essential civilian jobs, volunteerism, and more.

Those interested in attending can register online or by phone by contacting Grace Kelch at 810-632-5200 x113 or by email at: gkelch@cromaine.org
