The New Faces of Rosie the Riveter

The poster we call Rosie the Riveter was originally an in-house motivational poster for Westinghouse factories in 1943. But since Norman Rockwell’s image of Rosie the Riveter is under copyright, the “We Can Do It!” poster became more famous, and has been used by people for all kinds of reasons since it became famous in association with the women’s movement in the 1980s. See some examples of what I’m talking about in an article I posted at mental_floss.
