This episode was originally aired in the fall of 2017 as the launch of WAM, the Women And Manufacturing radio show. We want to be sure Manufacturing Talk Radio listeners hear the eye witness account of a true pioneer for women and manufacturing. Anna Hess is one of the original “Rosie the Riveters” – women who took to the factories during World War 2 in jobs that were traditionally held by men. With most of the workforce off to war, women like Anna played a crucial role in the war effort by working factory jobs making the machines that would ultimately achieve victory in Europe and the Pacific. In this episode, Manufacturing Talk Radio Hosts Lew Weiss and Tim Grady sit down with Anna to hear the incredible story of how women and manufacturing helped change the course of history. Tune in to future shows – women are about to change the course of manufacturing again in the very near future.
