This 44 minute documentary features five women and their paths to becoming "Rosies".
They were part of a vanguard of women during WW II, who left their homes and for the first time in our nation's history, took jobs that were once the exclusive domain of men.
The women in this film built ships. Big ones. And lots of them. Between 1942-1945 they helped build 747 Victory and Liberty ships at the Kaiser Shipyards in Richmond, CA.
At that time it was the largest shipyard in the world and the five women in this film became electricians, certified journeyman welders, and draftswomen. These were the women who built ships.
This film was created to honor the American women who helped this country win the war, and gave birth to the new and very independent American woman of today.
