During World War Two women became vital wartime workers, filling in on jobs traditionally held by men. Collectively they became known as “Rosie the Riveter.” And now for the first time, there will be a national holiday recognizing the work of these women, but just for this year. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports a Marin County "Rosie" is behind the effort to get the holiday on the calendar every year.

The Rosie the Riveter World War II Homefront National Park will be holding a special commemorative event with local Rosies tomorrow.

Reconciling Faith and Feminism

Sep 22, 2016

Islam vs. Feminism: the False Dichotomy was the topic of a talk given Thursday afternoon at Sonoma State, part of the feminist lecture series there. On her way to the campus, the speaker also visited KRCB to explain her topic and how she came to it.

This issue is hardly limited to Islam, notes Sabina Khan-Ibarra. She also contributed to an anthology that addressed it across multiple faiths.
