"Rosie The Riveters Of Iowa"  (SCGS Meeting)
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Ames Public Library, 515 Douglas Ave, Ames, Iowa and via Zoom
Presenter: Linda Betsinger McCann
Come learn more about Iowa's own women who went to work during WW2 with local historian and author Linda McCann.

Rosie the Riveter was the term given to the women who went to work during WWII. Most of the women went with hopes that would bring their husband or family members home sooner. Many women from Iowa went to the West Coast to work in plants that manufactured airplanes, tanks, and battleships.

A large number of women remained in Iowa and worked doing the same work here. The author was surprised how much production work went on in Iowa. Linda was able to speak with women who went to the coast and those who remained in Iowa and shares their memories in her book.
