Rose's Riveters

Carl Rose's four-panel cartoon apparently dates from the second World War, a time when men enlisted in the military and went overseas, leaving women to come forward and fill many defense plant jobs on the home front. This marked social change spawned the idea of Rosie the Riveter in the popular imagination. The cartoon was published in a March issue of Collier's.
