A full generation before Rosie the Riveter, American women entered war industries where they had never been welcome before. They ran machinery, learned new skills, and faced the sullen hostility of the men in the shops. Carrie Brown explores their courage and hard work, asks what impact “the Great War” had on their lives, and how these women helped shape the work that their daughters would do in the next World War. This program funded through a grant from the NH Humanities Council.
