Rosie the Riveter Day Becomes A Reality Thanks to Marin County ‘Rosie’

During World War Two women became vital wartime workers, filling in on jobs traditionally held by men. Collectively they became known as “Rosie the Riveter.” And now for the first time, there will be a national holiday recognizing the work of these women, but just for this year.

KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports a Marin County "Rosie" is behind the effort to get the holiday on the calendar every year.

The Rosie the Riveter World War II Homefront National Park will be holding a special commemorative event with local Rosies tomorrow.
