Our own Gail Beaton as “Gail Murphy” presents “Rosie the Riveter,” the name given to World War II women war who made bullets and performed a variety of jobs for the war effort. Between 1941 and 1945, Colorado had its own “Rosies” at the Remington Arms Factory at the site of the present-day Denver Federal Center. The Denver Ordnance Plant produced as many as six million bullets a day for U.S. troops. “Gail Murphy” is a composite character drawn from the records and memories of these women war workers. The Chautauqua-style presentation reveals women’s war work, the home front, and the changes in roles and expectations of women during World War II.
