The Girl With The Rivet Gun


The Girl with the Rivet Gun is an unconventional animated documentary short based on the adventures of three real-life “Rosie the Riveters” – Esther Horne, Susan Taylor King and Mildred Crow Sargent. From vastly different backgrounds, these three women came of age in an America united by war but struggling with divisions of gender, economics and race.Built entirely by women filmmakers, The Girl with the Rivet Gun serves as entry point to a rich, layered, and adventurous rewriting of history as herstory, inspiring conversations about working women everywhere.
