Rosie’s Mom: the forgotten women of the First World War

Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at 7 p.m. Join this exciting NH Humanities program via Zoom. See below for registration details

Presenter: Carrie Brown

One hundred years ago, a full generation before Rosie the Riveter, American women rolled up their sleeves and entered war industries where they had never been welcome before. They ran powerful machinery, learned new skills, and faced the sullen hostility of the men in the shops. In this illustrated lecture, historian Carrie Brown reveals their courage and their hard work, asks what impact “the Great War” had on their lives, and explores how these women helped shape the work that their more famous daughters would do in the next World War.

Pre-registration is required for the program. Go to to sign up for this and the other programs scheduled monthly through May 2021. Come and join us for some interesting topics and discussion.
