Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon of the United States, representing the American women who worked in factories during World War II, many of whom produced ammunitions and war supplies while the men were serving as soldiers in the war.

In 1942, Pittsburgh artist J. Howard Miller was hired by the Westinghouse Company's War Production Coordinating Committee to create a series of posters for the war effort. One of these posters became the famous "We Can Do It!" image that you see above.
