Book review by Elena
Do you know what women did when men went to fight in World War II? They said: “We can do it!” I got this book Rosie, A Detroit Herstory by Bailey Sisoy Isgro from Wayne State University Press. It explains what the women meant when they said that.
In April 1939, Germans crossed over Poland’s territory line. President Franklin D. Roosevelt wanted America to help out. So, as men were sent off to war to fight against Germany, someone needed to fill in their jobs. Those someones were women! Women invented new ways get the factory job done, like rolling on roller skates to retrieve parts faster. This inspired women today to be just like the icon, Rosie the Riveter, who said to all women in America, “We can do it!” You HAVE to read the book to find out what happened after men came back from war.
I recommend this book to anyone who needs to know there is no such thing as “the wrong sex” and everyone should be accepted to do anything, no matter the gender.
I give this book 4 out 4 roses.
