Seneca Falls, NY - Women's Rights National Historical Park is pleased to announce that it will show the documentary Top Secret Rosies: The Female Computers of World War II this Friday and Saturday, December 9 and 10, at 12 noon.

Top Secret Rosies: The Female Computers of World War II follows the lives of four women who worked on top-secret computer programs for the U.S. military during World War II.

The film is being shown as part of Women's Rights National Historical Park's first Winter Film Festival. The park exists to commemorate and preserve the events of the First Women's Rights Convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne.

The film is also being shown as part of Seneca Falls' annual It's a Wonderful Life Festival, which this year is being celebrated December 9 - 11. Both films are set in the World War II era.

Top Secret Rosies is one hour long and intended for a general audience. All Winter Film Festival movies will be shown at noon on Fridays and Saturdays, November through April, in the Guntzel Theater, located at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls. Because film lengths vary, visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing. All park programs are free and open to the public. For more information, please call (315) 568-0024. You can also follow the park's social media sites for Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/womensrightsnps) and Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/WomensRightsNPS) to learn about our upcoming events and programs.
