- Meet Rosie's Daughters in this collective memoir of American women born during World War II, precursors of the Baby Boom generation. Their stories will inform, entertain, and surprise you. In these in-depth interviews, they are declaring their place in history.
- Rosie the Riveter is a mythic figure in our culture, with good reason--she built ships, flew bombers and filled thousands of other essential wartime jobs, upending traditional views of "women's work. When the war was over, however, American industry thanked Rosie and sent her home.
- Rosie's Daughters flung wide the doors of employment opportunity that Rosie had unlocked. These women can claim more career "firsts" and greater socio-cultural change than any other generation.
- Momentous events at eventful moments in their lives shaped their remarkable journeys--the post-war education boom, sexual revolution and the Pill, civil rights and gender equality, the Vietnam War, NOW and consciousness raising, Roe v. Wade, no-fault divorce, old fields to conquer and new ways to work.
