When World War II started all the men in America had to go defend our country. In doing this many jobs were left behind that had to be done if we wanted to win the war. Many women say this, so they stepped up and started working in the factories and assembly line to get equipment out to the men. Soon everyone noticed and many women joined in to help. Even though there were many women helping out,you always need more so propaganda poster began to get big for the women to become "rosie the riveters". The rosies started their journey in 1943 when the Americans went into world war II. Being a Rosie was not a big deal back then but now it is a a very big deal because without these courageous women I don't think we would have been able to get through the war.
