The Library of Congress

The Library of Congress has launched a YouTube channel. I found this video about Rosie the Riveter to be very informative. We've all seen the image of Rosie, but do we really know anything about her? In this YouTube video Sheridan Harvey explores the evolution of "Rosie the Riveter" and discusses the lives of real women workers in World War II. Norman Rockwell painted a Rosie for Post Magazine in 1943 and it is discussed in this film.
