Gladys the Riveter Coming To SCCC/ATS Library
09/21/2010

³Gladys the Riveter² will kick off the 2010-2011 ³Lunch in the Library²

series at the Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library

on Monday, October 4.

Living historian Teresa Bachman gives her interpretation of the mythic

³Rosie the Riveter,² basing it on the stories of her aunts, who worked at

the Boeing airplane plant in Wichita during World War II, and on studies of

the realities of factory work and the World War II home front in general.

Step back in time to Boeing¹s 1945 wartime aircraft plant. Gladys Haines,

with rivet gun in hand, is working on a B-29 airplane. Gladys interrupts her

work to speak to a group of new hires (the audience). With the men having

gone to war, the women have stepped into the defense plants to do the work.

As home-front heroes, women made the difference between victory and defeat.

Gladys helps us understand their challenges (large gloves, overly friendly

supervisors, exhaustion, child care) and pleasures (great pay, after-work

recreation, helping in the war effort) of doing ³men¹s work² in the 1940s.

The performance will take place at 12 noon, Monday, Oct. 4, in the SCCC/ATS

Library 1801 N. Kansas in Liberal. Bring your own lunch and we¹ll provide

the drinks and cookies.

For more information, contact Matthew Pannkuk at 620-417-1161.
