Rosie Riveter 1With her determined spirit and “Can-do” attitude, Rosie the Riveter will be inducted into the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame this year, receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Michigan Women’s Studies Association. Rosie’s nomination was submitted by the Yankee Air Museum to recognize and honor the thousands of female defense workers rising to meet the home front industrial challenges in World War Two. Collectively, these unstoppable women became known as Rosie the Riveter.

 The induction will take place at the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame 34th Annual Awards Dinner and Induction Ceremony on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 in East Lansing, Michigan.
