Description

During WWII many jobs were vacated by men enlisting to serve. By 1945, nearly one out of every four married women worked outside the home. While women worked in a variety of positions previously closed to them, the aviation industry saw the greatest increase in female workers. The munitions industry also heavily recruited women workers, as represented 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 during World War II.

This iconic Rosie the Riveter backpack, made of polyester, measures 13" x 17". Great for the beach, gym or school.
