Topic: Culture
On Thursday a bunch of real-life Rosie the Riveters (Rosies the Riveter?) were honored at Arlington Cemetary in Washington, D.C.I’ve always liked RtR as a feminist icon — tough, strong, hard-working, her efforts vital to our national interests — and though the Greatest Generation has feted itself endlessly, I’m all in favor of giving some extra accolades to the Rosies.
