2017.  Washington Women in Trades 10th Rosie calendar.  

Many Women, One Tomorrow is Washington Women in Trades’ 10th Calendar.   Each of these people, in their own way, holds a piece of concrete in her pocket, the chunk they helped chip away from the cement wall of workplace, gender and cultural inequality.
The 2017 Calendar Girls carry a piece of that concrete, too. They were welders, riveters, electricians, munitions inspectors and fabricators. Their hometowns are widely spaced, from Virginia to California, and East Texas to Oregon. Each woman, in her own way, held to the “Yes We Can” credo through her life and shared it with the people important to her. It’s our pleasure to share it with you.
