Merde Mme Merderet
Le Merderet river in Normandy, France was assigned to my grandfather’s 82nd Airborne Division and the control of it’s bridges were key to holding off German counterattacks.
Mme. Merderet, a companion to Rosie the Riveter, is positioned against a backdrop of newspapers from 1942, WWII imagery, and iconic feminine references. She is passionate about equal access to benefits, privileges, and protections equal with men in the military.
