“Rosie the Riveter” is the name of a fictional character who came to symbolize the millions of real women who filled America’s factories, munitions plants, and shipyards during World War II. In later years, Rosie also became an iconic American image in the fight to broaden women’s civil rights.

After the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and the full involvement of the U.S. in World War II, the male work force was depleted to fill the ranks of the U.S. military. This came precisely at a time when America’s need for factory output and munitions soared.

The U.S. government, with the help of advertising agencies such as J. Walter Thompson, mounted extensive campaigns to encourage women to join the work force. Magazines and posters played a key role in the effort to recruit women for the wartime workforce.

Saturday Evening Post cover artist, Norman Rockwell, is generally credited with creating one of the popular “Rosie the Riveter” images used to encourage women to become wartime workers.

Rockwell’s “Rosie,” shown at right, appeared on the cover of the May 29th, 1943 edition of The Saturday Evening Post. The Post was then one of the nation’s most popular magazines, with a circulation of about 3 million copies each week. In addition to Rockwell’s Rosie, however, another image would become the more commonly known “Rosie the Riveter” image.

Our shirts run a little small and are athletic fit so if you are in-between sizes or are unsure, please order up one size.

    Empowering!

    This is such a fun shirt! I knew I had to have it when I saw it. For those larger girls, I was a bit worried about fit. However, the 2xl relaxed fit worked just fine. Everyone who's seen it has really liked it. I think the fit will get even better as I continue my weight loss journey. It's also a very comfortable fabric.

    Awesome design, but short on taller girls.

    I just wanna start by saying I have a lot of stuff from your site and love it. The designs and the mens clothes usually fit me pretty good for being as tall as I am(6'9"). I got this shirt for my wife who is also on the taller side for women(5'10"). She loves the design but it is a bit short for her. I know it's hard to cater to so many sizes being a small company, and not everyone is as freakishly tall as us. Other than that we love what you do.
