Rosie the Riveter represents a lot of women who entered the workforce during World War II.  Most of the women worked in the manufacturing plants that made munitions and materials for the war.  They took the place of the men fighting in the Pacific.  “Rosie” became a cultural icon of the U.S. and is now considered a feminist – hence the slogan “We Can Do It!”  The Rosie character was created based on Rose Will Monroe who was from Pulaski County, Kentucky.  She was born in 1920 and moved to Michigan during the war.  She worked as a riveter at the Willow Run Aircraft Factory in Ypsilanti which built B-29 and B-24 bombers for the U.S. Army Air Force.  “Rosie the Riveter” films and posters were created by the U.S. government to encourage women to go to work to support war efforts.
