'Rosie the Riveters' wanted


The American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women who worked on the home front during World War II. Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, plant inspectors, sewing clothes and parachutes for the military and many other jobs such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other materials.

These women have stories of their WWII experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told. American Rosie the Riveter Association would like to acknowledge these women with a certificate and have their stories placed in the association’s archives.

Founded in 1998, American Rosie the Riveter Association is an non-profit organization with over 4,500 members nationwide. If you are a woman (or descendant of a woman) who worked during WWII, or if you are just interested in more information call toll free 1-888-557-6743 or email at
