Rosie the Riveter

Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter was the cover of the Saturday Evening Post on Memorial Day, May 29, 1943. Rockwell’s illustration features (présente) a brawny (musclée) woman taking her lunch break with a rivet gun on her lap (genoux), beneath (en dessous) her a copy of Hitler’s manifesto, Mein Kampf and a lunch box labeled “Rosie”. She epitomizes (symbolise) strength and determination.

Women at work

Watch this video and take notes (worksheet)

With thousands of men away serving in the armed forces, British women took on a variety of new jobs during the First and Second World Wars.


Many of these roles had traditionally only been done by men and were thought unsuitable (inapproprié) for women because they were dirty or difficult.


Women became train cleaners, bus conductors, volunteer policewomen; they worked in factories, drove tractors on farms and transported coal.

Women’s work would be vital to the British war effort in World War Two, so much so that it soon became compulsory (women had to do it by law).
