Independence Day Inspiration Board: Rosie The Riveter

Rosie the Riveter wasn’t a real person, but she did symbolize a generation of patriotic American women and early feminism. When the U.S. needed workers for factories during WWII, women answered the call, working in shipyards, steel mills, warehouses, etc. Rosie the Riveter was the nickname given to women working in war-time industries at this crucial time. These women, no doubt, helped win the war. Check out our interpretation of Rosie the Riveter’s style after the jump.
