«The Rabble Rouser, Mother Jones» and «Rosie the Riveter» Performed by Judith Black

In two first-person presentations, professional storyteller Judith Black interprets Mother Jones and Rosie the Riveter, two icons of female empowerment.

Mary Harris Jones, “Mother Jones,” was born in 1830. Her life as an agitator, organizer, and advocate of the working man raised the consciousness at the turn of the 20th century.

Nearly 50 years later, throughout World War II, as the boys went off to fight, Rosie the Riveter «manned: the factories and kept the front supplied. With humor and chutzpah (daring), this story explores the issues that women dealt with on the job during the war.

Funding for this program is provided by the Moses Greeley Parker Lecture Series.
