Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words...  Aug 31, 2006 this book is worth several volumes. During World War II, millions of American women joined the work force to replace men who had gone into the armed services and to expand war production. After the war, these women were expected to return to traditional female roles. Through anecdotes and statistics and priceless photographs, Penny Colman illuminates the wartime experiences of girls and women and suggests the toll that being kicked to the curb... I mean... returned to the home after the war took on many of them.
outstanding  Jun 15, 2000
Colman combines masterful storytelling with criticalcutting-edge insight to create an imposing study of a crucial periodin U.S. history. Rosie the Riveter reveals the ways in which government and industry manipulated gender roles to serve their own interests both before and after the war. Colman's Rosie the Riveter is history at its best- engaging narrative, illuminating details, and fabulous photographs (including a picture of Marilyn Monroe as a war worker).
Rosie the Riveter - dud!  May 6, 2000
Women working during WWII is an interesting subject; however this book turns an interesting subject into a dry, uninteresting tale. I hope other author's explore this topic. I am very disappointed in this book.
