What is the name of the cultural icon most closely associated with women factory and naval yard workers during World War II?
Answer Rosie the Riveter
Thousands of women worked in factories during WWII as men fought overseas. Rosie posters highlighted the capabilities of women workers. The US government (as well as Allied governments) created similar posters to encourage women to join the workforce at this particular time. Women were responsible for creating weapons and aircrafts, products that were essential to the war effort. Many women remained in the workforce following the end of the war.
