Oh yeah, you know Rosie the Riveter…
Back in the 1940s, when North America faced a labour shortage caused by, oh, all the brawny young men going off to fight World War II, the ultra-feminine but well-muscled Rosie hit the poster boards to lead young women into the non-traditional work force.
But, as it turns out, all the Rosies out there proved that there’s no biological imperative to limit a woman’s career choice to secretary, nurse, domestic, or teacher.
And then there was just no putting the lid back on that particular Pandora’s Box, now, was there?
