    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Rosie was used as a propaganda tool for the Unites States during the Second World War.  As opposed to earlier wars, the heavily mechanized war required a large number of labourers on the home front, and with a fair majority of the male work force deployed as soldiers, it was decided that women be integrated into these jobs.  Rosie became a propaganda tool to show that it was an acceptable occupation and that it aided the war effort.
