About this item

Rosie the Riveter, star of a government campaign aimed at recruiting female workers for industry, became perhaps the most iconic image of the more than six million women who joined the workforce during World War II. "Rosie" represented the skill, ability, and patriotism of U.S. women working on the home front. Pittsburgh artist J. Howard Miller was hired by the Westinghouse Company's War Production Coordinating Committee to create a series of posters for the war effort such as the We Can Do It! poster pictured here. Solid brass, giclee print, ear wires are hypo-allergenic. Hangs approx. 1.75 "
