Geraldine Hoff Doyle, was a 17 years (in 1942) while she was working at the American Broach & Machine Co. when a photographer snapped a pic of her on the job.
That image used by J. Howard Miller for the “We Can Do It!” poster, released during World War II.
Oh shit, that’s the real “Rosie the Riveter” ?
BAMF INDEED. This woman deserves all the respect in the universe!
I need this on my blog.
this should have way more notes
Step aside, people, Rosie the fucking Riveter is on your dash!
17 years old?!
Ya’ll know that’s not actually Rosie the Riveter, right? Rosie the Riveter was on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post in May 1943 and was painted by Norman Rockwell. The picture most people think of as Rosie (the one everyone here has reblogged) is thinner, more dolled up, and was used as internal propaganda by the company that commissioned her. That “Rosie” wasn’t distributed (to the outside world) or even popular until the war was long over.
This is how history is rewritten, guys.

And this is Tom. They have different colored hair.
This is Castiel
And this is Misha. They wear different clothes.
This is Tony Stark
And this is Robert Downey Jr. They have different names.
Actually, don’t forget that Tony Stark is about half a foot taller. RDJ is a tiny tiny man and it’s hilarious.
