Learn about the great contributions that women made to World War II efforts and meet Gail’s character Gail Murphy, a bullet case worker at the Denver Ordnance Plant.
When: Tuesday, March 8 at 1:00 pm
Where: Join us on Zoom!
To celebrate Women’s History month, join Colorado Humanities and Front Range Community College in a live, online presentation featuring Gail Beaton as Colorado’s Rosie the Riveter. The 30- to 45-minute presentation will be on Zoom and will include a Q&A session afterwards.
Rosie the Riveter is the name given to women war workers during World War II, who lived and worked throughout the United States welding, making bullets, and doing a wide variety of factory jobs vital for the war effort. Learn about the character Gail Murphy, a bullet case worker at the Denver Ordnance Plant, and the great contributions that women made to World War II efforts.
In Chautauqua tradition, Gail will first take questions as the character, then answer questions as the scholar/actor. To register and receive the link to the event, visit the Colorado Humanities Speaker’s Bureau webpage.
