Everyone knows Rosie the Riveter, the WWII feminist icon and star of the famous “We Can Do It!” war posters.
What everyone doesn’t know is that the inspiration behind the Rosie character was Geraldine Doyle, a 17-year-old Detroit factory worker at the time of the War.
Since Doyle’s death last week, tons of girls took to Flickr to pay their respects.
How? By reenacting Rosie’s famous “We Can Do It!” pose, obviously!
