We're honoring Rosie the Riveter this Labor Day. See her below me? An American icon, Rosie represents women who joined the workforce in the 1940's to continue the work of manufacturing war machines when our men were drafted to fight WW II. Her iconic image, first painted by Norman Rockwell, signified the new role of women in the workforce -- resplendent & beautiful in her red bandana and red lipstick, wearing that determined expression while flexing her bicep and declaring: "We Can Do It!"
