Requested by Janna


Thanks for the request @jannychan! You were definitely hoping for a quick history lesson, right? 😘
  1. "We Can Do It!" Is an American wartime propaganda poster produced by J. Howard Miller is 1943 for Westinghouse Electric as an inspirational image to boost worker morale.
  2. During the war, the poster was only used internally at Westinghouse to urge already-hired women to work harder, not as a call to inspire women workers to join the war effort. After the war, the poster was seen very little.
  3. The poster was rediscovered in the early 1980s, and frequently called "Rosie the Riveter" after the iconic figure of a strong female factory worker.
  4. After its rediscovery, the image started being used to promote feminism. It was on the cover of Smithsonian magazine in 1994, and was made into a US first-class stamp in 1999.
  5. I wore this costume for Halloween in 2015.
    I'm a feminist. I'm also a person whose company "encourages" costumes at Halloween, and who liked the idea of wearing combat boots, jeans, denim shirt, and head scarf rather than something complicated.
  6. I like promoting personal strength, self empowerment, and an uplifting attitude.
    Just like Beyoncé.
