Rosie the Riveter

When America's men left to fight with the Allies in World War II, women were recruited through posters and other propaganda to work at non-traditional jobs in defense plants and factories. Many women had always held jobs outside the home, but this was the first time they were being paid well and taught skilled labor. Many other women had not held a paying job outside of their home and this was a new experience to earn money for their hard work. These "Rosie the Riveters" proved their abilities to America and themselves and have not looked back since.
