'Rosie the Riveter' film to be shown

June 08, 2011

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — A documentary about the women who worked in factories to keep Americans supplied during World War II is to be previewed Friday (June 10) at the Erma O. Byrd Center at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, W.Va.

A reception is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. and the film is to be shown from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

This will be the only opportunity for the public to see an early cut of "We Pull Together: Rosie the Riveters, Then and Now," before its premiere in Charleston, W.Va., on June 28.

Supported by a grant from the West Virginia Humanities Council, the film commemorates the work of "Rosie the Riveters" and preserves the memories of many of the Rosies who are still around.

It will be available for use in schools and other educational venues.

The film is part of the work of Thanks! Plain and Simple, which also is helping current veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan re-establish themselves in civilian life.
