Rosie the Riveter and Women’s History

Last week, for an anti-bullying week, we were to dress as someone who we look up to or our hero.  I look up to so many people, but many of them don’t have a costume, per say, so I chose a fictional person. Rosie the Riveter was invented by the government to help encourage women to work in the factories during World War II.

I did a bit of research and found a Newsela article that you might find interesting: “Rosie the Riveter” still inspires working women today

As we head into March, it is women’s history month and I will try to link up to some neat women’s history resources for those of you who are interested.

Here is the poster and here I am too! And here is to all women, everywhere taking care of business. YES, WE CAN!
