Exhibit – Fashion in the Factory: Women at Work During World War II

10:00 am to 04:00 pm on Apr 27
Monroe County History Center, 202 E 6th Street

While women took blue collar jobs during World War II, their uniforms began to reflect a feminine presence in a male-dominated environment. On loan from Indiana University’s Elizabeth Sage Historic Costume Collection, a jumpsuit worn by a worker in Evansville, Indiana, will be on display, as well as other garments typical of RCA wartime workers.

We have four missions: to support local businesses, local charities, local arts, and diversity. We are an integral part of the fabric of this community.
