Beyond Rose: Women in World War II
_
_________________________________________________

Rosie the Riveter is the iconic symbol of women's involvement in World War II. She is one part, however, of a larger story about the ways women contributed to and were affected by war. World War II changed the everyday social, cultural, and economic realities of life in the United States, especially for women. Beyond Rosie: Women in World War II explores this important story in its complexity and honors women in World War II.

Beyond Rosie is accompanied by a teacher's guide that illuminates the topics addressed in this exhibit. This curriculum is suitable for Grades 5-12 and meets the Georgia Performance Standards.
