We Can Do It! Rosie the Riveter poster inspired the cover art for Fighter in Velvet Gloves

Fighter in Velvet Gloves cover art inspired by this WWII poster of Rosie the Riveter ‘We Can Do It.’ This Rosie the Riveter poster by artist Howard J. Miller was displayed by Westinghouse Electric Corporation for two weeks in 1943, as a way to encourage more women to work in factories during WWII. In the 1980s, it became popularized when the National Archives licensed the photo for sale. Controversy exists as to whether the original model was Geraldine Hoff Doyle or Naomi Parker Fraley.
