I've always loved The Saturday Evening Post's version of Rosie the Riveter by Norman Rockwell. His touches of humor and satire make it a sublime contrast to the better-known Westinghouse poster of Rosie.
Rosie the Riveter. Ca. 1940s. American. During the 1940s, especially when World War II began, there was a huge wave of feminism. Throughout the war, there were posters showing how women were tough and wanted to join the men and make a difference. One extremely famous poster was the "We Can Do It!" poster with Rosie the Riveter on it. Rosie became a well-known symbol for feminism during this time period and even today. History.com
