2019. Washington Women in Trades 12th Rosie calendar.
While the pun amused us, we didin't discount the innate courage shown by each of the 2019 Rosies. As teenagers from all corners of Canada and the US, they took buses and trains across the country to take jobs they had no idea how to do, among people they had no idea how to relate to. They became shipyard welders, munitions inspectors, riveters and drivers. One even made mosquito netting! It’s their gutsiness that inspired them to later become world travelers, engineers, scholars and business owners.
The 12th annual calendar featured all women currently living in Oregon.
Thanks to Yvonne Fasold, our Oregon Rosie organizer.
