Illustrated with black-and-white photographs. When America's men went off to
war in 1942, millions of women were recruited, through posters and other
propaganda, to work at non-traditional jobs. In defense plants, factories,
offices, and everywhere else workers were needed, they were--for the first
time--well paid and financially independent. But eventually the war ended, and
the government and industries that had once persuaded them to work for the war
effort now instructed them to return home and take care of their husbands and
children. Based on interviews and original research by noted historian Penny
Colman, "Rosie the Riveter" shows young readers how women fought World War
II from the home front.
