Rosie the Riveter: We Can Do It!

Rosie the Riveter: an influental American poster from during World War II.

Lately, I was watching the Cold Case episode called 'Factory Girls' about a girl who was murdered in a factory during World War II when women made their first steps in the history of feminism. The flashbacks towards the year 1943 were amazing: the clothes, the make-up and the hairstyles were so lovely! As a proud pioneer of feminism I could not let this pass me by, so I immediatly made a plan to post about this fashion period and the women who lived in it! Not only as an honour to the hard working women during the World War II who stood up for their rights, but also as an inspiration for the lifestyle of that period.

Here are some pictures of the episode from Cold Case:
