Check Out Some Pop Culture Characters Posing As Rosie the Riveter


Labor Day often is used as the signal that the summer has come to an end, and it is often looked upon as a great vacation weekend because almost everyone gets a day off from work on Monday. But most people forget that the holiday is a celebration of work in general, and all the jobs that people have occupied in the past. It is a general 'Thanks for all the hard work' celebration. Rosie the Riveter is a character that is often tied to women and their role in the work force, especially back during WW II. Rosie symbolized woman as being a strong and intricate part of keeping the American workforce up and running during a time of war when men were away fighting. In honor of Labor Day, IO9 posted a gallery of artistic creations depicting high profile female pop culture characters doing their best Rosie interpretations.
