In commemoration of National Women’s History Month, Catherine and theater students from Mills College will present The Women Back Home. We will go back to the home front of 1944 as the women carry on and keep the home fires burning as their men serve overseas. The wives, mothers, sweethearts of servicemen work in factories, plant victory gardens and manage the home, counting the days til their boys come marching home. Based on letters written to a new bride, a sweetheart, a sister and a mother, we will return to a time when service and sacrifice were the order of the day.
The Rosie the Riveter WWII Home Front National Historic Site is dedicated to telling the stories of the home front. To learn more, please visit the website, www.nps.gov/rori.
