The American Rosie Movement!

“Thanks!” has worked more than decade to find, interview, and get the public and partners to work with Rosie the Riveters (“Rosies”) so that their legacy is part of America’s identity and future.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union . . .

Pull better when we pull together!

Our Goal

The goal of the American Rosie Movement (ARM) is to unlock America’s potential
by guiding generations to act on the real meaning of pulling together for America.

We help you work with Rosies to pull America together again 

Current Events

Speak Out! (Public assembly)

August 29th in Washington D.C. at 12:30 p.m., please join us to seize this moment to hear America’s Rosie the Riveters. This will be the kick-off to the Ring a Bell Bell for Rosies event in many locations on September 2nd (Labor Day). The message is: “Wake up America! It’s time to hear the fuller story of how much we can do when we pull together!”

Ring a bell, and play your role in the American Rosie Movement

From Holland to Hawaii “the people” will ring bells for Rosies on America’s Labor Day, September 2nd, at 1:00 pm wherever you are. This wave of sound across time will show that you want to follow the Rosie legacy for America’s wise use of freedom. Be sure to take photos or video and share them with us and others. Learn more about this historic event! 

Importance of Projects

Projects are very important to you, your community, and the American Rosie Movement (ARM). When you work on a Rosie project, you work with many people, places and partners to assure that the Rosie Legacy is quickly rooted its rightful place in America.

Rosie the Riveters

“Rosie the Riveter” means millions of women, not one woman. The number of women worked on the home front in factories, shipyards, farms, and for the government equaled the number of who men served in the military. Rosies made a huge difference in shortening and winning WWII, and they did much for America after the war, including nurturing men who were wounded in body and spirit and raising children who believed in more equality for women. Most Rosies have passed, but you can find living Rosies and help assure that the “Rosie legacy” becomes part of America’s identity and work to preserve freedom.

Each Rosie Project should:

get people to work together
across generations

Agnes Smith drove an overhead crane in a factory in Baltimore that chrome plated aircraft engine parts. Her family was in Poland, so her story was about her struggle for freedom in America and Europe. Agnes died in 2017.

Maxine Marshall worked in a manufacturing plant in New Jersey while her husband was a prisoner of war at the Battle of the Bulge. Before her death, she was dedicated to the health of seniors and to the Lions Club of America.

These Rosies are gone.
We must find and learn from the Rosies who are still with us.
