"Rosie the Riveter," star of a government campaign aimed at recruiting female workers for the munitions 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 superb skill, ability, and patriotism of all U.S. women working on behalf of the domestic, industrial efforts on the home front. In 1942, Pittsburgh artist J. Howard Miller was hired by the Westinghouse Companys War Production Coordinating Committee to create a series of posters for the war effort. One of these posters became the famous We Can Do It! image an image that in later years would also become Rosie the Riveter.
