“Rosie” is the name given to women whose work helped to win World War II. We are sure you are familiar with the iconic “We Can Do It!” poster! In 1943, J. Howard Miller produced this with the intention to inspire women to work outside the home. Today is National "Rosie The Riveter" Day.
There were many women that filled many factory jobs left vacant by men who went to fight in the war. Check out the lyrics in the background of this beautiful piece!
You can see this quilt "Rosie the Riveter" by Linda MacDonald in the HERstory exhibit through April 9, 2019.
