Women’s Studies | Rosie’s Mom: Forgotten Women of the First World War
In this illustrated lecture, historian Carrie Brown explores how women of "the Great War" helped shape history.
One hundred years ago, a full generation before Rosie the Riveter, American women rolled up their sleeves and entered war industries where they had never been welcome before. They ran powerful machinery, learned new skills, and faced the sullen hostility of the men in the shops.
In this illustrated lecture, historian Carrie Brown reveals their courage and their hard work, asks what impact “the Great War” had on their lives, and explores how these women helped shape the work that their more famous daughters would do in the next World War.
This is a Women’s Studies & SGA sponsored event. Refreshments will be provided.
