Infographic: Women in Manufacturing

I happened upon this infographic and found it so interesting. Although most people with a passing familiarity of American history are familiar with Rosie the Riveter and know that women were essential to the war effort by working in manufacturing during World War II, contemporary women in manufacturing is a demographic that's often overlooked. Consequently, I think it's really important that this infographic is shared and these women are acknowledged. It's not fair to only glorify the women of the past who worked in factories; it's imperative that the feminist community embraces those working in factories today, and encourage others who wish to work in manufacturing to follow their dreams.
