About Rosie the Riveter as Inspiration for Cover
Recruitment poster by J. Howard Miller for the Westinghouse Company’s War Production Coordinating Committee (National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution). This poster urged women to join America’s factories, munitions plants, and shipyards during World War II. By 1944, more than six million women answered the call and became factory workers — part of a 57 percent increase in women’s workforce participation since 1940. After the war, these women were encouraged to return home.The name “Rosie the Riveter” originated in popular culture with a 1943 song by Red Evans and John Jacob Loeb as well as a 1944 Republic Studios romantic comedy starring Jane Frazee. In the ﬁght to broaden women’s civil rights, “Rosie” became an iconic American image in the late 1960s and 1970s as feminists battled for federal enforcement of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) in the workplace. Only then did the Miller/Westinghouse poster pictured here become associated with “Rosie the Riveter” and become a symbol of the emerging economic power of women.
