Abstract:

"World War II found men racing to the battlefields and women racing to fill the jobs the men left behind. Many women found themselves working toward the war effort in industries previously reserved for their husbands, sons, and other male relatives. A majority of women worked in factories. One such woman inspired the iconic legend of Rosie the Riveter, a fictitious idol who has inspired many from the 1940s on. In this richly illustrated book, readers will discover Rosie the Riveter's story, from her start as a subject of a photograph to the living propaganda legend she became, to her place in the United States in the twenty-first century."--Amazon.com.
