Isn't it remarkable that the "Rosie the Riveter" icon was created 60, 70 years ago, and it is still so immediately recognizable that just about any woman (or man) can become Rosie with nothing more than a blue work shirt, a red headscarf, and bright red lipstick? That there is some remarkable visual design and cultural storytelling. Long live Rosie!
