Speak Out! (Public rehearsal)
August 29th in Washington D.C. at 12:30 p.m., join us to seize this moment to hear America’s Rosie the Riveters. This kick-off will practice the Ring a Bell Bell for Rosies event from Holland to Hawaii on September 2nd. 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! Annual Ring a Bell for Rosies will be on our site by August 10th.
Wherever you are Ring a Bell for Rosies at 1:00 p.m. on September 2nd.
Be sure to document your experience with photos or video and share them with us and others.
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 and solidly rooted in its rightful place for America.
For examples of projects that can inspire you and your community to help launch the American Rosie Movement, see here.

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.
Pull America together, again!

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.
