First Inspiration of Rosie the Riveter

She was known as a model citizen of the United States who provided a fundamental service for his country at war. Specifically in a work that, until that time, was done only by men. In this sense, the woman worked during the night shift at a plant in Connecticut, driving rivets into the metal bodies of the Corsair fighter jets, which were used in Europe. With the passage of time its history became known in the newspapers of that country, until in 1942 a song was composed in her honor called precisely Rosie the Riveter. However, Rosalind was not the model of the traditional feminist poster entitled “We Can Do It!” (We can do it), since the model at the time was Naomi Parker Fraley, who died in 2018.

Rosie the Riveter Song:

“All the day long whether rain or shine
she’s a part of the assembly line
She’s making history,
working for victory —
Rosie, brrrrr, the Riveter
Keeps a sharp lookout for sabotage
Sitting up there on the fuselage
That little frail can do, more than a male can do —
Rosie, brrrrr, the Riveter.”
