On Memorial Day, May 29, 1943, Rosie the Riveter made her appearance on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post. Norman Rockwell had chosen to portray a female factory worker taking her lunch break. The simple concept had a powerful and long-lasting message behind it and would help symbolize women’s empowerment for decades to come. As part of a government campaign to encourage women to join the workforce and help fill much-needed positions in factories, munitions plants, and shipyards, Rockwell did his part to stir up patriotic duty.  Based on a popular song at the time called Rosie the Riveter, Rockwell’s powerful image of a strong, patriotic factory worker who was proud to do her part in the war effort, was not just a campaign but a celebration of the women who had already begun doing all they could to support their boys in the war.
