Lipstick Brigade tells the dynamic, inspiring-and until now, untold-story of Washington’s World War II “Government Girls,” recruited from every corner of the nation to staff the offices of America’s central command post. Sometimes called white-collar Rosie the Riveters, this clerical corps over 100,000 strong became federal stenographers, typists, code breakers, analysts, and spies.

Come join us to hear Cindy Gueli discuss her book. Do you have personal stories to share with the group?
