After 18 months of development and construction, the Women Answer the Call exhibit celebrates the history of what happened at Willow Run during World War II when women left their homes to work in factories supporting the war effort. Visitors will get a glimpse of local Rosie the Riveters that went to work in the Ford Willow Run Bomber Plant in Ypsilanti. Guests will learn about the many roles women played in the war, both in industry and military, see fascinating artifacts from local families, and partake in a hands-on riveting demonstration. The Media Day tour will also include Yankee Air Museum’s Tribute Rosies and Original Rosies who worked at the Bomber Plant and other factories in Detroit during the war.
