The factory went back to making automobiles after the World War II ended, and it did so for more than a half-century under the General Motors name before closing for good in 2010. A group trying to save the Detroit-area factory where Rosie the Riveter became an icon of American female empowerment during the war said Friday, March 28, 2014 that it must raise $1.5 million in the next few weeks to save the site from being demolished.
