The history of women in welding started with the female labor revolution that took place during World War II when American women were needed to fulfill jobs traditionally done by men, who were enlisted. The character of "Rosie the Riveter" was used in campaigns in the 1940s to inspire women to work for their country, and the empowered allegorical figure continues to be a popular cultural icon today. Munson-Williams is offering a weekend-long workshop specifically for women to learn welding skills for three full days, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, October 8, through Monday, October 10. Materials are included in the registration fee of $150 ($145 for Munson-Williams Members). Scholarships are available to cover all or a portion of the registration fee.
