The American Rosie Movement (ARM) is a new kind of social movement that gets people to learn to take actions and share what they do with other Americans, in order to honour Rosies, who are now in their 90s and who are still contributing to America.

Doris Fields, winner of coveted awards for song writing and singing will perform, and then help teach the song to the public, and then all will sing to Rosies.  

Tijah Bumgarner, Ph.D., who was videographer on the documentary film, “We Pull Together: Rosie the Riveters Then and Now” will film this history-making event. 

Selected citizens will receive awards from “Thanks!” for exceptional ‘Rosie work’”  

Anne Montague, Executive Director of “Thanks!” says,”I started the work for ARM in WV, to give Rosies in rural and smaller-towns America a voice. This song works–it’s easy to learn, it gives people a way to thank Rosies, and it’s happy.  It’s my way of saying, ”Thanks!” to my own mother who worked at Polan Industries in Huntington in 1944-45.   

Available on request: Rosies phones for pre-event interviews, lyrics, a list of Rosie projects completed and ready for Americans to replicate, a quiz about Rosies, places helping to launch ARM in the U.S. and Europe, information on the American Rosie Movement, and how to ring bells for Rosies on Labor Day in unity with others across America and in Europe.
