WASHINGTON – This week, Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), Chairwoman Emeritus of the House Appropriations Committee, and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) introduced the Women Who Worked on the Home Front Memorial Location Act.

This bipartisan bill authorizes the National Mall in Washington, D.C. as the location for the memorial honoring the many American women who worked on the home front to support our troops during World War II.

“It’s long past time we honor the important contributions women made during World War II,” said Congresswoman Kay Granger. “Through this monument, visitors to Washington, D.C. will learn of the great sacrifices American women made to ensure that the service members on the front lines had everything they needed to succeed. I am proud to lead this legislation that will honor their efforts and help ensure better representation for women in our nation’s capital.”

“Our Rosies answered the call when our nation needed them most, redefining the role of the American woman and opening the door wider for generations to come,” said Congresswoman Debbie Dingell. “This bill will take us one step closer to ensuring our Rosies receive the recognition they deserve, and I am honored to lead legislation to honor their service and commitment to America and their unwavering ‘can do’ spirit. We will always be thankful for their strength, bravery, and lasting impact on our nation.”


This bill advances a decade-long effort to properly honor the more than 18 million trailblazing women who worked as riveters, pilots, engineers, electricians, mechanics, code breakers and more, to ensure that America had what was needed to fight and bring an end to World War II. The passage of the Women Who Worked on the Home Front Memorial Location Act is the next step towards the construction of the monument after Congress passed legislation in 2022 to approve the establishment of a memorial.
