Rosie the Riveter: Women Working on the Home Front in World War II Rating:

The award-winning account of how 18 million women, many of whom had never before held a job, entered the work force in 1942-45 to help the United States fight World War II. Their unprecedented participation would change the course of history for women, and America, forever.

"Colman looks at the jobs women took, the impact women had on the workplace, and what happened to working women at war's end, but what's most interesting is her discussion of the public relations campaign that not only "wooed" women into the workplace, but also sought to change firmly entrenched attitudes about women's role in society." -- Kirkus Reviews
