Life and times of Rosie the Riveter” (1980) Directed by Connie Field
A compelling yet engaging documentary based on interviews with six women who worked on assembly lines during WWII in jobs usually reserved for men. An insightful look at the spark that ignited the women’s liberation movement nearly three decades before its official ‘birth.
