Places Where Women Made History

Richmond, California


Rosie the Riveter made her debut in song, but it's the brawny image on the famous poster that's the vivid reminder of the women who took over traditionally male jobs during World War II, pumping out airplanes and ships for the war effort. The Rosie the Riveter Memorial, designed by Cheryl Barton and Susan Schwartzenberg, is near the Richmond, Calif., shipyards where liberty ships were built. It's part of the World War II Home Front National Historical Park, dedicated to those who stayed home to win the war.
