Come and meet one of the original Rosie’s, Fairfax’s own Phyllis Gould.
You probably know Rosie the Riveter as a cultural icon, but she’s so much more than that: behind her image stand thousands of women who entered the workforce during World War II and who forged a path for working women after them. Phyllis Gould was one of these first Rosies employed over in Point Richmond. She is still a tireless campaigner, advocating for the contribution that the Rosies made to the war effort to be recognized and celebrated.
We’re hosting an intimate coffee morning with Phyllis. You’ll get to meet Phyllis and hear her incredible stories of what the first years of the war looked like, how being a Rosie impacted her life then and now, and how women’s roles in society and work have shifted through the decades.
