Memorial Miniature Golf and Museum: Hole 10 – Women of War
Hole 10 is sponsored by:
Though often underappreciated in the context of the great battles of WWII, the contributions made by women to the war effort were astounding.
Between 1940 and 1945, over five million American women entered the workforce, largely in military or previously male-dominated industries. Women were not relegated to the homefront however, as roughly 350,000 women served in the Armed Forces. These women served as nurses, truck drivers, mechanics, and non-compat pilots known as WASPs.
On the Russian front, women were sent into combat too, serving as snipers, messengers and recon pilots. The propaganda figure “Rosie the Riveter” became an icon for American women on the homefront during WWII. Thousands of “Rosies” assembled tanks, planes, weapons and everything needed to wage war in Europe and the Pacific. These opportunities for work allowed women into the defense industry and office jobs that were formerly male-dominated.
For the first time, women received a level of financial independence although men generally still earned more in wartime professions. Although many women enjoyed the financial independence offered during WWII, once the GIs returned home the majority of women were laid off from their jobs.
Vocabulary Word: Rosie the Riveter – Known by the now famous “We can do it” slogan, Rosie the Riveter was the centerpiece to a propaganda campaign aimed at recruiting women for work in defense industries. The Rosie campaign is credited with increasing women in the workforce by 10% during WWII.Memorial Miniature Golf and Museum
A pretty simple hole with the cup location in the back left behind a few patches of rough. A Rosie the Riveter national Memorial garden is also located between holes 9 and 10.
Mister Mini Golf Pro Tips
Try to drop it in between the two patches of rough to break back into the hole.
