In early to mid-2013, I digitized a collection of unedited personal interviews; subjects for the documentary film The Life and Times of Rosie the Riveter. I listened to about 40 hours of “Rosie” interviews with the real women who were hired by US industry and manufacturing to help with the war effort during World War II.
