A few years later, the same woman, whose brain never stops working, proposed that WWIT do a calendar featuring these women, affectionately known as Rosie the Riveters. We're proud to say we've produced nine calendars and are working on our tenth.
The Rosie Legacy ProjectIn the early 2000s, one of the WWIT board members came up with the idea to honor women who worked in the factories during World War II. She orchestrated a mini PR campaign that culminated with ABC News coverage of their gathering at the Career Fair. It was a tremendous success. Nearly 100 women attended the luncheon at Seattle Center.
We have been extremely blessed to meet each and every one of the women who've participated in the calendars. They have become our friends and mentors.
