Rosies Invade the Yard!
August 11 & August 12, 2018
Charlestown Navy Yard
Join us for a two-day extravaganza celebrating the role of women workers at the Charlestown Navy Yard!
Thousands of women worked at the Charlestown Navy Yard during World War II. The Yard's newspaper called them SWONs: the Shipbuilding Women of the Navy. They fulfilled roles from painters to welders, and riveters to sheet metal workers. Their efforts played a critical role in the outcome of the war and left a lasting mark on American history. Come join us in remembering and celebrating the work of these Shipbuilding Women of the Navy!
