International Women's Day
Happy International Women's Day!
Did You Know?
The iconic, "We Can Do It!" propaganda poster, designed by J. Howard Miller for Westinginghouse, originally had not intention of being associated with women's rights. It was produced to help encourage female employees to fill factory jobs during WWII. It wasn't until after the poster had been removed from factory walls, that Rosie the Riveter came to be synonymous with women's rights and a feminist icon.
I've always loved this poster's iconic message in not only women's rights, but also in design. This year's International Women's Day was a great excuse to build off the original design into something more fitting for today's society.
A v special thank you to my brother Alex, a bitchin' artist & drawer, on helping me with this poster design.
