#52: The Search for the Rosies

KYW In Depth: Coronavirus
Tuesday, May 28th
During World War II, a lot of working age American men were drafted or joined the armed forces. They left a lot of jobs back home that needed to be filled to power the war effort. In many cases, the jobs were taken by women, who became known as Rosies (as in Rosie the Riveter). Now, 75 years after D-Day, there's a movement underway to find the Rosies who are still with us. Scroll Down producer and reporter Charlotte Reese takes over the podcast this week with the stories of two Rosies who helped in the war effort, and one woman has made it her life's mission to reunite the working women of World War II across the country.
