2011. Washington Women in Trades 4th Rosie calendar.
Rosie the Riveter is an icon, an often over-used image of a young bandanna-ed woman with her fist in the air, signifying the WWII era “We Can Do It” spirit. We truly hoped that this calendar embodied that spirit, but our real goal was to portray the “real” Rosie. It was an honored privilege to meet that woman--a lesson in history and a giant blast of inspiration. While each of these women was a good hand sixty years ago, stepping up and doing what was needed, each was still extending that hand in 2011, still cradling a world of hopes, aspirations and despairs. And just as they did in 1940, they did it with the same strength, grace and courage.
