DAY OF THE GIRL: October 11. 2017
Yvonne Pillon, President and CEO Of WeTech Alliance celebrates Day of the Girl by donning her Rosie the Riveter outfit.
Detroit's Willow Run bomber plant is the historically significant as the workplace of "Rosie the Riveter," a ubiquitous icon used for propaganda purposes to lift workers' spirits; her image continues to be widely represented as a symbol of women's rights and female power. The real Rosie, Rose Will Monroe, moved from Kentucky to Michigan and was hired as a riveter at Willow Run. As men marched off to war, thousands of women were recruited to handle any and every job within the factory; women performed admirably. Rose Monroe starred in a promotional film about the war effort on the home front; the legend of Rosie the Riveter was born. Films and posters depicted Rosie encouraged women to come together in support of the war effort. The war contributed greatly to women entering the workforce and founded a social movement for equal rights from then on. In fact, the National War Labour Board directed women and minorities receive the same pay as white men.
