The one on the left is the famous Rosie the Riveter icon that encouraged women to leave home and work during WWII when many had husbands fighting overseas.

by J. Howard Howard Miller 1942

The second is a newly published image of an African American Rosie, from the US Library of Congress through Flickr (everyone is on here now?) of a real life "Rosie the Riveter". I love it. I love them both.

by Alfred T. Palmer 1943
