Who was Rosie the Riveter?
Rosie the Riveter was a fictional character who represented about six million American women employed in war material manufacturing during WW2.
Rosie the Riveter was a media propaganda creation devised to encourage women to fill in for men while they were fighting World War II. Rosie The Riveter was also the name given to the woman depicted on many of the propaganda posters. In the most famous one, she is wearing a red and white bandanna to cover her hair, and she has rolled back the sleeve of her blue coverall to expose a flexed bicep. The expression on her face was confident and determined. The caption above her head reads, "We Can Do It!" in bold letters.
J. Howard Miller, an artist then working for Westinghouse, painted the poster captioned We Can Do It! in February 1942 in support of the war effort. The poster was based on a wire photo of 17-year-old Geraldine Doyle working in a Michigan factory. Miller's poster prompted the painting of Rosie the Riveter by artist Norman Rockwell, which was published on the May 29, 1943 cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Rockwell's painting shows a woman with a riveting tool and wearing working clothes while eating a sandwich from a lunch box with the name Rosie painted on it. The woman in the painting was a composite drawing of several women, many of whom can rightfully claim to have been one of the original Rosies.
