The above iconic image of Rosie the Riveter became the central face of Rosies throughout America and served as the rallying cry for an entire social movement. Rosie the Riveter was one of the most widely known personas of the 1940s. With her hair in a polka dot kerchief, sleeves rolled up, and a positive set to her jaw and eyes, Rosie could never be taken for granted. She had a can do attitude, femininity, beauty and yes, sex appeal.
