I may or may not have teared up at the videos of the real life Rosie the Riveters who visited the White House for a gold medal ceremony. As one said in this brief speech, “Up until 1941, it was a man’s world.” I just love the chutzpah of that comment from a Rosie about the difference they made both to history generally but to prospects of women in the workplace more specifically. The effort to improve things obviously isn’t over. But it’s a good idea to raise a toast to the Rosies who moved the baton further round the track for all of us.
