Rosie The Riveter

Men! Don’t Let Your Wife Or Girlfriend See This!


Want to surprise her with something really cool for Valentines Day? Check out what Oath Keepers has done with Rosie The Riveter!

“Rosie The Revolutionary”

It’s been a long time since “Rosie The Riveter” from the World War II promotional campaigns was dished by Hollywood and plenty of other art sources. She was promoted across America as a symbol of service to America during the war.  At this website those like me who were not around way back then, (I was born in 1945, right on the end of WWII and the beginning of the thermo-nuclear bomb era), can read the following synopsis:

“Rosies” in the Work Force

While women worked in a variety of positions previously closed to them during World War II, the aviation industry saw the greatest increase in female workers. More than 310,000 women worked in the U.S. aircraft industry in 1943, making up 65 percent of the industry’s total workforce (compared to just 1 percent in the pre-war years). The munitions industry also heavily recruited women workers, as illustrated by the U.S. government’s “Rosie the Riveter” propaganda campaign. Based in small part on a real-life munitions worker, but primarily a fictitious character, the strong, bandanna-clad Rosie became one of the most successful recruitment tools in American history, and the most iconic image of working women in the World War II era.

In movies, newspapers, posters, photographs and articles, the Rosie the Riveter campaign stressed the patriotic need for women to enter the work force. On May 29, 1943, The Saturday Evening Post published a cover image by the artist Norman Rockwell, portraying Rosie with a flag in the background and a copy of Adolf Hitler’s racist tract “Mein Kampf” under her feet. Though Rockwell’s image may be the most commonly known version of Rosie the Riveter, her prototype was actually created in 1942 and featured on a poster for the Westinghouse power company under the headline “We Can Do It!” Early in 1943, a popular song debuted called “Rosie the Riveter,” written by Redd Evans and John Jacob Loeb, and the name went down in history.

And there are plenty of other sites on the Web which feature histories about Rosie The Riveter.  Here, here, and here, for example.

Well, you men are probably wondering by now – why should we hide that history from our wives and girlfriends, eh? Here’s why, Bro – If your wife or girlfriend is a Patriot like you, and if she is proud of the good work women did to help the USA win WWII, and if she’s tired of getting that same ol’ box of chocolates each Valentines Day, you can surprise her on this Valentines Day with Oath Keepers’ newest shirt design just for her, from you!

  1. WoW! Someone has their thinking caps on over there guys, timeless! Those ladies tops will always be in style.

    I am proud to say my mother was a “Rosie the riveter” during the war.
    She worked in the offices and factory of RCA where they were developing sophisticated radar systems and had a security clearance and worked under David Sarnoff. I remember for many years when I was a kid during the 50’s my mom and many other women would wear a hair covering the same as Rosie’s for a long time after that.
    Great idea guys, great! Molon Labe

  2. I WANT one of these! But the website store states “Out of Stock” and won’t let me add to my shopping cart..What’s up? When will they be available? I’ve been checking back since yesterday when I first saw the above article…

    [Editor’s note: Nancy, Thanks for letting us know. I just got a call back from the store and they’ve found the glitch and are fixing it right now. Please try to place your order again in about an hour or so. And please know that we’ll make sure you get your shirt! Thanks for your support,
    Salute!

  3. The site I posted is a dedication to my late husband, also a dedicated warrior. We both come from a long list of dedicated, patriotic men and so, by association, I too am an Oathkeeper. I was taught well and even though I am 69 this month I am not without skills to defend myself and family
    if needed. My husband reminded me that he was a soldier even on his last day. He’d always said he would go if his people called him again.
    I love the Rosie shirt! Will be ordering one later and hope they are in ladies sizes, not men’s.
    I love you all!

    [Editor’s note: We salute you, and your patriot family, Shirley Pearson. The shirts are in ladies’ sizes, but of course. 😉
    Salute!
