Top Secret Rosies: The Female Computers of World War II

April 21, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Facilitator: Mr. Charles Gilbert, retired minister

In 1942, a secret U.S. military program was launched to recruit women to the war effort. But unlike the efforts to recruit “Rosie the Riveter” to the factory, this clandestine search targeted female mathematicians who would become human computer for the U.S. Army. This 60-minute documentary tells an untold story of women and technology that helped win a war and usher in the modern computer age.
