Forgotten Women of the First World War

July 24, 2016

One hundred years ago, a full generation before Rosie the Riveter, women rolled up their sleeves and entered war industries where they had never been welcome before. They ran powerful machinery, learned new skills, and faced the sullen hostility of the men in the shops. In this illustrated lecture, historian Carrie Brown reveals their courage and their hard work, and explores how these women helped shape the work that their more famous daughters would do in the next World War.

Funded project of the Vermont Humanities Council.  The Vermont Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
