A group of former “Rosie the Riveters” visited the White House today “to urge that working women of World War II be remembered,” reports CBS News’ Mark Knoller.

“This isn’t about personal glory,” said Phyllis Gould, 92. “I wanted this visit to bring attention to the fact that our generation had to struggle to earn the right to work in a man’s world. Young women need to know this history and realize we paved the way for them. I think that knowledge has been lost.”
