Pancake Breakfast & The Working Women of WWII

Thursday, November 14, 2019

In movies, newspapers, posters, articles, and even a Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post cover, the Rosie the Riveter campaign stressed a patriotic need for women to enter the workforce —and they did, in huge numbers. By 1945 nearly 1 in 4 married women worked outside the home, and over 350,000 enlisted in the U.S. Armed Forces. Join us for a delicious pancake breakfast served up by City staff, followed by a riveting presentation with the Carver County Historical Society on The Working Women of WWII.
