This inspirational picture book shares how an iconic image of a working woman evolved into a symbol of hope and strength for all girls and women.

Rosie the Riveter was born in 1943, in the middle of World War II. Riveting is a way to hold pieces together to make something strong and powerful. In a time when everything was coming apart, the US turned to Rosie and American women to hold things together.

Over time, Rosie came to represent so much more. As women pushed back against all the things society suggested they couldn’t do, they used the symbol of Rosie to motivate, represent, and unite them. Today, Rosie isn’t just one woman—she’s every woman. Like a rivet, she holds us all together, reminding us how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go.

This inspirational picture book traces Rosie’s formation and legacy from World War II to today, then addresses girls directly to tell them that they are capable and strong—just like Rosie.
