- The Artist
Rosie the Riveter, portrayed in “We Can Do It!” by J. Howard Miller, helped forge women’s rights by helping recruit six million women in to the workforce during World War II, indelibly changing workforce dynamics and women’s role in society. Miller, who created posters to support the war effort, based his 1942 poster on a wire photo of 17-year-old Geraldine Doyle pressing metal in a Michigan factory. Featured on newspapers, magazines and posters, Rosie became a feminist icon who forever changed women’s economic power and acceptance into traditionally male industrial trades.
Women’s rights were forged from steel during World War II, due in part to American graphic artist J. Howard Miller. In support of the war effort, Westinghouse commissioned Miller to create an empowering series to attract women to fill jobs while men were at war, with ultimately six million women working at industrial plants. Miller’s work appeared on magazines, newspapers and posters, and helped increase women’s earning power and acceptance in to male-dominated trades. The U.S. Postal Service recognized the historic significance by including his “rosie the Riveter” image as part of its’ World War II series in 1992.
