2018.  Washington Women in Trades 11th Rosie calendar.  

This year’s title was certainly inspired by the 2018 Rosies, each having done such a diverse set of non traditional jobs, but it really speaks to the present, as well. Yes, women have made great strides in the workplace. Yes, there’s even been a woman presidential nominee! Slowly, slowly, women are proving that they will not only get jobs in the trades industry, they’ll keep them, too.
Each of the Rosies in each our calendars was the embodiment of the process. And because we had the opportunity to meet, photograph and interview each of them, they lifted the words of history off the printed page and made them real. The Rosies inspired many locally with appearances at WWIT Trade Fairs, Dream Big Dinners and other events. A few continue to volunteer at the Rosie Museum in Richmond, CA and give talks all over the country.
