The Lipstick Brigade, The Untold True Story of Washington's World War II Government Girls
Presented by author Dr. Cindy Gueli, historian, reporter and producer
You’ve heard of Rosie the Riveter, but do you know about Washington’s Government Girls? Almost a quarter of a million adventurous young women swarmed the nation’s capital to become stenographers, typists, code breakers, analysts, and spies to help America fight World War II. Dr. Cindy Gueli discusses the captivating, surprising, and often moving first-person stories she collected for Lipstick Brigade, her book of how these incredible women triumphed over the challenges of war and the chaotic, frustrating, and often deadly capital boomtown. Her book will be available for purchase after the program.
Professor Gueli has taught and lectured widely on American social and pop culture history. She is also a media professional who worked as a consultant on Showtime’s The Untold History of The United States, a reporter and producer for Associated Press Television News, VH1, and A&E, and creator and host of the web series “Scandalous Washington.” After the program, stay and enjoy a delicious lunch!
