“Sono sempre più facilmente disgustato dal fatto che stiamo vivendo in questa società impegnata a farci spendere più di quanto abbiamo, o più di quanto dovremmo, per cose di cui non abbiamo realmente bisogno o che vogliamo, e che inoltre ci sta uccidendo lentamente mentre ci riempie tutte le discariche e fa cantare sempre meno gli uccelli.” Contenti voi !!

The confusion, we can do it in the media: Beyoncé posted a photo to Instagram mirroring the famous “We Can Do It” poster. The photo racked up more than 300,000 likes within half an hour. Beyonce, a self-described “modern-day feminist,” incorporated ideas often symbolized by Rosie in her most recent album, her styling is not very original,there are dozens of “Rosies” on the Web, but in the world obsessed with celebrities it’s a good excuse to remind the story of real Rosie the Riveter. 

Rosie the Riveter,  became a cultural icon that recognizes the contributions made by women during World War II. Norman Rockwell’s image of “Rosie the Riveter” received mass distribution on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post on Memorial Day, May 29, 1943. Rockwell’s illustration features a brawny woman taking her lunch break with a rivet gun on her lap.

Rosie the Riveter is representing the American women who worked in factories during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies. These women sometimes took entirely new jobs replacing the male workers who were in the military. Rosie the Riveter is commonly used as a symbol of feminism and women’s economic power.

In 1942, Pittsburgh artist J. Howard Miller was hired by the Westinghouse Company’s War Production Coordinating Committee to create a series of posters for the war effort. One of these posters became the famous “We Can Do It!” image—an image that in later years would also be called “Rosie the Riveter,” though it was never given this title during the war. Miller is thought to have based his “We Can Do It!” poster on a United Press International wire service photograph taken of Ann Arbor, Michigan, factory worker Geraldine Hoff (later Doyle), who was 17 and briefly working as a metal-stamping machine operator. The intent of the poster was to keep production up by boosting morale, not to recruit more women workers. It was shown only to Westinghouse employees in the Midwest during a two-week period in February 1943, then it disappeared for nearly four decades. During the war, the name “Rosie” was not associated with the image, and it was not about women’s empowerment. It was only later, in the early 1980s, that the Miller poster was rediscovered and became famous, associated with feminism, and often mistakenly called “Rosie The Riveter.”
