Rosie the Riveter Congressional Gold Medal Act

This bill directs the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives to make appropriate arrangements for the award of a single Congressional Gold Medal to Rosie the Riveters (i.e., any female individual who held employment or volunteered in support of the war efforts during World War II), in recognition of their contributions to the nation and the inspiration they have provided to ensuing generations.

The medal shall be displayed at the National Museum of American History, which is urged to make the medal available for display at other locations associated with the Rosie the Riveters.
