Organization seeks info on WWII women workers

-A A +A

American Rosie the Riveter Association is trying to locate women in Lancaster and the surrounding area, who worked on the home front during World War II.
Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors in plants, sewing clothing and parachutes for the military, ordnance workers, rolling bandages, clerical and many other jobs, such as volunteer workers collecting scrap metals and other critical materials.
These women have stories of their World War II experiences that are of historical value and perhaps have never been told.
American Rosie the Riveter Association would like to acknowledge these women and have their stories placed in our archives.
American Rosie the Riveter Association is a patriotic/nonprofit organization whose purpose is to recognize the history and legacy of working women during World War II.
This organization was founded in 1998 by Dr. Frances Carter in Birmingham and now has more than 4,400 members nationwide.
If you are a woman or descendant of a woman who worked during World War II, or if you are just interested in more information, please call our toll-free number, 1 (888) 557-6743, or email americanrosietheriveter2@yahoo.com. We can also be contacted at American Rosie the Riveter, P.O. Box 188, Kimberly, AL 35091.
