Three of the re-enactors for the "real" Rosie the Riveter, Ethel Berry, and Sacagawea.

The American Association of University Women, Tehachapi Branch offers the stories of remarkable American women to schools and civic organizations during the month of March.

The characterizations this year include Sacagawea, the Shoshone guide for the Lewis and Clark Expedition; Ethel Berry, the Alaska gold rush pioneer who partnered with her husband to start the Berry Petroleum empire; Ernestine Kettler, the suffragette who was jailed in 1917 for picketing the White House; and a portrayal of the real Rosie the Riveter from WWII.

The four tales are well researched and costumed and are suitable for all ages, brought to life by the presenters who respond to questions from their own eras.

To schedule this program for your school or organization during the National Women in History month, please contact Andi Hicks at (818) 427-5650 (hicks.andi@gmail.com).
