Transcript of Rosie The Riveter by Carter Berryhill

     Women had long been seen as stay at home mothers before World War II. The typical American family had the father that woked each day of the week and the mother who raised the children.
The fact of the matter is, women always worked outside the house but it just wasn’t glorified as much. These women were usually in the lower class or the minority and many men did not have the best attitude toward them. They believed a man would better suit their jobs.
Before World War II
During World War II
After World War II
American women entered the workforce in unprecedented numbers during World War II, as widespread male enlistment left gaping holes in the industrial labor force. Between 1940 and 1945, the female percentage of the U.S. workforce increased from 27 percent 37 percent, and by 1945 nearly one out of every four married women worked outside the home.
“Rosie the Riveter,” star of a government campaign aimed at recruiting female workers for the munitions industry, became perhaps the most iconic image of working women during the war.
Rosie helped inspire women all over the country to partake in the work force, with many paintings apperaing in popular newspapers, the most famous one apperaing in the Saturday Evening Post.

Rosie The Riveter
Women serving in our military during WWII challenged social norms and the views of women as a sex. The large number of women involved in the war and the scale of the war itself led these changes to be seen in a far greater picture.
A huge impact the war had on women was that it changed their expectations and they wanted to make a different and better name for them. This event was the largest game-changer for females that transformed the United States as a nation.
We became a leading military power with a large amount of force throughout the entire globe.
Quizlet Definition
"A cultural icon of World War II representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies."

Rosie the Riveter is used as a symbol of American feminism and women's economic power.
Similar images of women war workers appeared in other countries such as Britain and Australia. Images of women workers were widespread in the media as government posters, and commercial advertising was heavily used by the government to encourage women to volunteer for wartime service in factories.
Rosie The Riveter was painted by Norman Rockwell and modeled by a women named Naomi Parker Fraley.
Naomi died at the age of 96 on January 20, 2018
