Creating Rosie the Riveter

The article by Maureen Honey was a good read. It gave women the image that they needed. It proved that women can work hard and be successful at it. It also shows that women can be just as good as men and that gender doesnt matter. During this time period women were forced to step out of their comfort zone and into the workforce. This turned out to be a good thing, because it boosted their confidence as citizens.

"War work became a vehicle for women to shoulder their civic and moral responsibilities as good citizens rather than as a way to become more independent and powerful (Honey, 8)."

What about the creation of the image of Rosie the Riveter? What about the role of propaganda in mobilizing the population for war? How does your post relate to the topic of this class?
