Rosie The Riveter

Rosie The Riveter

Pictured above:  Norman Rockwell's Rosie the Riveter/ On May 29, 1943...Memorial Day...Norman Rockwell's own image of "Rosie the Riveter" appeared on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Please note the patriotic theme, background, along with the attributes of strength and femininity.  Of interest: Rosies' penny loafers rest casually on a copy of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf, a magazine article.

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.
