The Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C. recognizes the work of Rosie the Riveter and her contributions to the victory over tyranny in World War II.

Rosie was not one single woman, but an American icon representing all women who worked in US factories to build the machines and munitions that soldiers used to fight World War II.

In 2015 a dogwood tree, dedicated to “the Rosies,” was planted on the embassy grounds.

Their work still resonates today, especially in this special year, during which we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands.

Their work greatly supported America’s effort to liberate the Netherlands. The people of the Netherlands will never forget their commitment and dedication.
