Rosie the Riveter says “We Can Do It!” : Dispatch From Isolation # 25

Rosie the Riveter has been working hard to raise awareness of political and social causes ever since the character was a propaganda tool for the “war effort” in WWII. The image of strength and defiance in the face of formidable foe, a symbol of women’s empowerment, this is an image that tells everyone to pull together.

With a face mask and gloves, we admire her gusto and recognize that the burden of calamity often lands hardest on the working class and poor. Our sincere thanks to all the medical personnel who work so hard. Here re-interpreted by Maki from Boston, keep your eyes out on the street for this one. But really we should just STAY HOME.
