Labor Celebrates Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month—and who better to lead the way than Rosie the Riveter?

Show your Rosie spirit by sporting the Rosie the Riveter T-shirt that proudly states, “A Woman’s Place Is in Her Union.” On your coffee table, a set of four Rosie the Riveter coasters will make your point. The Rosie the Riveter We Can Do It poster will look great in any room.

Finally, learn all about Rosie’s origins with the paperback book by Maureen Honey, Creating Rosie the Riveter: Class, Gender and Propaganda During World War II. Honey’s book studies how advertisements and published stories were used to encourage women to enter the workforce during World War II—and how the Rosie the Riveter figure came about.

And be sure to see what else The Union Shop Online has to offer—everything’s union-made-in-the-USA.

Information about membership and the important work of the Coalition of Labor Union Women can be found online at their website.
