Rosie the Riveter Here are some great photos from the Library of Congress. I first heard about this when I was a kid, from my mom, who worked as a riveter for an aircraft plant during WWII. Rosie was an actual person, a riveter from Kentucky who represented the six million women who worked in the manufacturing plants that produced munitions and material during World War II. These women took the places of the male workers who were absent fighting in the Pacific and European theaters. The character is now considered a feminist icon in the US, and a herald of women's economic power to come. Rosie and her slogan were featured on posters, magazines, and more. These hard working women were paid a whopping $31.21 a week compared to men who brought home $54.65. Now....over 60 years later we're still fighting for equal pay!

Boston Marathon Cheater Rosie Ruiz On April 21, 1980 unheralded Rosie Ruiz was the first woman to cross the finish line in the prestigious Boston Marathon. Her apparent victory in record time was immediately suspicious. First, everyone assumed Jacqueline Gareau was the leading female. Nobody saw Gareau lose the lead in the race at anytime after the eighth mile. Furthermore, Ruiz's running shoes were barely scuffed and she was hardly perspiring in the unseasonably warm weather. Two Harvard University students signed affidavits stating they saw Ruiz illegally enter the course just a few hundred yards from the finish line. Ruiz denied the accusations and maintained she had run unnoticed among a pack of male runners. Few people believed her story and she was subsequently disqualified after an investigation. To this day Ruiz has stubbornly refused to return her winner's medal, so Gareau was given a larger medal. Twenty five years later Gareau was ceremoniously allowed to break the tape--a thrill that Ruiz deprived her from experiencing in 1980. Ruiz had qualified to run in Boston by finishing the 1979 New York City Marathon with a decent time, but investigators discovered she had cheated there too. (She left the course after a few hundred yards, took a subway train to an area near the finish line, illegally re-entered the race and finished 26th.) Ruiz promised to prove her innocence by winning the 1980 New York City Marathon. She never showed up.

Margaret Court Wins Grand Slam Here an historic sports clip: The last four games of the 1970 U.S. Open women's singles final. Margaret (Smith) Court thumps Rosie Casals to capture the Grand Slam. Only one other female had achieved the feat previously: Maureen Connolly in 1953. Only one woman has done it since: Steffi Graf in 1988. Bud Collins and Billie Jean King provide the commentary. (Check out Bud's trousers! He was always a flashy dresser.)

Jacqueline Gareau Victory Ceremony On Arpil 21, 1980, Jacqueline Gareau, 27, of Montreal competed in the prestgious Boston Marathon. Gareau took the lead amongst the female runners after seven miles. Accordingly, the television coverage focused on her until the controversial finish. Gareau was shocked to find another runner, Rosie Ruiz, had broken the tape ahead of her. Ruiz was disqualified after an investigation proved that she had started the race, vanished, and then re-entered the marathon course a few hundred meters from the finish line. Despite overwhelming evidence that she had cheated, Ruiz remained utterly defiant--to the point of refusing to return her medal. Gareau was awarded a medal a few days after the fact in a subdued ceremony. Twenty-five years later, at the 2005 Boston Marathon, the 52-year-old Gareau rightfully got her "moment of victory" denied to her in 1980 by Ruiz's cheating. Gareau was allowed to ceremonially break the tape, and was given a bigger medal than Ruiz had gotten in 1980.
