The Rosie the Riveter National Historic Park in Richmond honors the 18 million women who joined defense industries during World War II. With her rolled-up sleeves, clenched fist, and polka-dotted kerchief, Rosie the Riveter rose to stardom as a symbol of the American civilian workers during the war. Richmond became a pivotal spot for wartime manufacturing, and its population quadrupled during the war as women flooded in to fill jobs, including fastening rivets on aircraft. At the visitor center, you can explore educational exhibits, watch documentaries, and try out a rivet station interactive display while learning about the hazardous conditions, housing shortages, and discrimination experienced by these women as they built the war supplies that powered the U.S. military to victory while building momentum in their struggle for equal rights. We will enjoy lunch at the Assemble Kitchen, adjacent to the visitor center.
