WHO ARE ROSIE THE RIVETERS' DAUGHTERS?

The men of World War II have often been labeled the "Greatest Generation." But what about the women who stayed home, who became the Rosie the Riveters and helped win the war? Today you read more stories about them as their contribution is finally being recognized.

And now, the story of the lives of their daughters, Rosie's Daughters, the generation who changed the face of the American workforce by entering occupations previously reserved for men.

ROSIE'S DAUGHTERS: THE "FIRST WOMAN TO" GENERATION TELLS ITS STORY

This 4-time, award-winning, breakthrough book is about the generation of women that broke through centuries of limitations to take their place in the world . . .

Now in a NEW, Updated 2nd Edition!

AND AUTOGRAPHED. WE CAN PERSONALIZE THE AUTOGRAPH. JUST LET US KNOW THE NAME OF THE RECIPIENT OF THE BOOK -- EVEN A SPECIAL MESSAGE, IF YOU LIKE.

These daughters of the Rosie the Riveter generation were born during World War II and came of age in the 60s… both shaped by and an influencer of their times. These precursors of the baby boomers achieved more “firsts” than any group of women before or since, earning them the name of “First Woman To” Generation.

Rosie’s Daughters heralds Rosie the Riveter as the icon for our mothers who built ships, flew bombers and filled thousands of other essential wartime jobs, upending traditional views of “women's work.” When the war was over, however, American industry politely thanked Rosie, handed her a pink slip, and sent her home.

Rosie’s Daughters flung wide the doors of employment opportunity that Rosie had unlocked. Their stories show how the post-war education boom, sexual revolution, civil rights and gender equality, the Vietnam War, consciousness raising, Roe V. Wade, no fault divorce and other events influenced their lives and continues to shape their journeys.

Authors Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett have rewritten the rules for book design. They push beyond conventional format to give the first person stories of the more than 100 women interviewed in a multidimensional context within the historical narrative that spans six decades of change-social, cultural, economic and political. It’s a feast for mind and eye.

The result is ROSIE'S DAUGHTERS, an inspiring read that is informative and entertaining.

HERE'S WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT ROSIE'S DAUGHTERS>>>

----ROSIE'S DAUGHTERS is the first collective memoir of an entire generation of women–and what a generation it is. Women born between 1940-1945 (my generation!) danced to Elvis, went to college, burned our bras, married and had babies (or sometimes just had babies), climbed career ladders, and fought gender discrimination. Rosie’s Daughters helps us understand the social contexts within which our stories have taken place. It is impressively conceived and vividly told. –Susan Wittig Albert, best-selling author of the China Bayles mystery series, founder of the Story Circle Network


----Diving into the memoir, ROSIE'S DAUGHTERS, is like reading a fun history book where I recognized five generations of my own family. I love the unique format of this book. If I were studying history, I could cram for the test just by riding the “fast track” timeline that runs across the bottom of each page. It is evident that Butler is not only a scholar and psychologist, but a compassionate human-being who has added a significant chapter to our U.S. history books. Rosie’s Daughters should be required reading for women’s studies courses. –Betty Auchard, speaker and award-winning memoir author, Dancing in My Nightgown


---… a masterful job of weaving many voices into a text that is easy to read and filled with “Aha!” moments. ROSIE'S DAUGHTERS is a stunning contribution to the history of the ‘movement in America. I take it as a given that Rosie’s Daughters will be a textbook in every Women’s Studies course across the country, but it deserves a wide readership among the general public as well. Rosie’s Daughters helps me understand who those women were, the forces that shaped them, and how very rough and rocky the terrain was before they passed by. –Beth Proudfoot, Director of the East of Eden Writers Conference


---ROSIE'S DAUGHTERS is a unique combination of personal stories, research, history, art and the author’s own reflections, engagingly written and beautifully presented. This is social history without the turgid prose, a compilation of interviews without the annoying interruption of flow—even a motivational book without the saccharine—in the appealing voice of a perceptive author.

Women who want to reflect constructively on their own lives will find much that is helpful here, as will students seeking to understand an era that powerfully affects their own. Indeed, Rosie’s Daughters offers to all a prototype of how to present a rich feast of important information in an appealing, accessible way. –Geneva Overholser, Curtis B. Hurley Chair in Public Affairs Reporting, University of MO; and past Editor, Des Moines Register
