As the Second World War waged across the Atlantic, America shook off the Great Depression and became the Arsenal of Democracy, producing military supplies for embattled allied nations. After Pearl Harbor, America joined the fight and millions of working-age men were called up to serve their country.
The crucial production of that democratic arsenal fell to American women. During this period, many women worked outside the home for the first time in their lives in factories and assembly lines. J. Howard Miller's We Can Do It! poster depicts one of those women, who, over time, became known as Rosie the Riveter. Over the ensuring 75 years, the poster has become a symbol of feminism and female empowerment.
Whether you're interested in this image's modern significance, its historical nature, or just want a recognizable patriotic symbol for your fridge, this magnet makes a great keepsake. It'll also keep your grocery lists in one place!
