Co-Sponsor H.Res. 756, the Bi-Partisan Resolution Honoring “Rosie the Riveters” during Women’s History Month

Some of the most important contributions made to the war effort during the Second World War were made by the countless working women of America who dedicated themselves to strengthening our nation in one of its most difficult times. These “Rosie the Riveters”

for our “Rosies” during Women’s History Month to honor their service to our country.
