I am writing concerning your article on the delay of the airing by NBC of the West Virginia Rosies. I feel it’s a disgrace not only to West Virginia, but to women in general.
The Rosies were a very important part of the history of our nation. This is the fourth time this has been delayed and like the article stated, there are less and less of these great women left. Their story should be told while they can still see it.
We should be proud of them and the heritage they have left. They were hard-working women and deserve to have the story aired.
(Editor’s note: NBC has scheduled the “Rosies” to be broadcast Christmas Eve morning between 7 and 10 a.m. on the “Today” show.)
