Working in Factories Helped to Liberate Women on the Home Front
04.23.13 by Shari
One thing’s for sure, working in WWII wasn’t for the faint of heart. Whether it was as a Bomb Girl or as a riveter, leaving the kitchen back then was scary business, but many women just like Edith White Franks stepped up and took their place in the factories to become Real-Life Rosies. Edith tells us how working as a riveter started as a way to bring back her father and brothers, and ended up making her stronger, smarter, and more capable than she ever could have dreamed. Itching to see more strong women like Edith? Just watch Bomb Girls Wednesdays at 8p ET/ 5p PT.
