Maybelline's Rosie the Riveter during World War ll was the Wonder Woman of her time

Long before the Women's Movement, Rosie the Riveters of
WW11,  built all the planes, ships, tanks and all necessary equipment that our country needed to win the war.  They were
the ones who knocked down the doors for women's rights. 

It was a mans world up until 1941 when Pearl Harbor was
bombed. It was Rosie the riveters who built the B-17s and the
B-29. They found that the women were every bit as good at
these jobs as men were, some of us were better.  worked hard to promote Rosie.

Krier has had Congressman, Mike Fitzpatrick propose to make

May 23rd National Rosie the Riveter Day. She is working on
trying to get a statue of Rosie in the WW11 Memorial in
Washington D.C. There were between 16 and 20 million
women who went to work during the war. It is time for these
amazing women to get due recognition.

Krie goes to different groups to tell the Rosie Stories. Some
are really outstanding. Krier often said that "if it hadn't of been
for Rosies role in WW11, we may be speaking German or
Japanese today."


" I think they were right,"  Mae Krier

It's officially Fall and the Holidays are around the corner. I'm happy and sad at the same time to see Summer go this year. I was thinking about Maybelline's new Wonder Woman line of make up and realized that during WW11, Rosie the Riveter was the Wonder Woman of her time. Our strong mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers were the Wonder Women who inspired the Super Women of today. Here is Maybelline's Rosie the Riveter from the 1940s.
