Rosie the Riveter Poster

First Posted February 15, 1943 at Westinghouse Electric Service factories

The We Can Do It poster, that’s what

Imagine showing up for work on February 15, 1943. After hanging up your coat, you walk onto the factory floor and notice a new poster on the wall. To keep up morale, you are treated to a new one every two weeks.

But this poster is different. It shows a woman much like you. She wears a red-and-white polka dot bandana, blue factory clothing, employment badge on her collar, and has the words We Can Do It! captioned over her head.

We Can Do It! — that’s your attitude too so you like this poster.


 

Rosie the Riveter PosterAbout 1800 copies were originally printed and displayed in the Westinghouse Electric Service factories beginning on February 15, 1943. That was the humble beginning of the now famous poster.

The poster was almost forgotten. However, the women’s movement of the 1970s rescued it from the dustbin of history. In fact, it became an integral part of the feminist movement. And today, it is a recognized icon, symbolizing women’s strength, courage, and empowerment.

In 2020, 77 years after Westinghouse displayed the original Rosie the Riveter poster, we have a 2-FER offer on our special version of this poster.

2-Sided Rosie the Riveter PosterWhat Can You Do With This Special Offer?

Here are just a few ideas. We’re sure you have other ones: 

  • Give 1 poster to an elementary or secondary teacher in anticipation of March’s Women’s History Month AND keep one for your kitchen
  • Send 1 poster to your daughter at college for her dorm room AND  keep one for your office
  • Donate 1 poster to a woman’s shelter AND keep one for a women’s luncheon
  • Make 1 a party favor AND use the DIY side of the other for your daughter’s (or granddaughter’s) birthday party photo backdrop where all the guests can “Do the Rosie.”
  • Use as a puppy bandana, AND empower your dog (although she probably already knows it).
  • Share one with your best friend.

You can keep the bandana and collar button for yourself, send them along with your gifted poster, or use them at a party. Both items make posing in front of the DIY side of the poster great fun.
