I know the poster "We can do it"  but I did not know the history of the woman behind it.

Honour to her.

IRL I am a paramedic and my company does some contract work in Longview, WA. Several months ago I was in the position to transport her home. She was a sweet, gracious lady. On arrival at the place she was staying, it was the care staff that informed who she was. She had a copy of the magazine with the article about her. I got to spend way too little time with her talking about her factory time in Alameda.

I have always been very proud of my mother who passed a few years ago.  She worked as a welder on Liberty ships. I used to refer to her as Rosie the Riveter and she was always quick to inform me the she was Winny the Welder.
