Celebrating 70 Years Of Women in Manufacturing (INFOGRAPHIC)

Today, May 29th, marks the 70th anniversary of the publishing of Norman Rockwell’s iconic “Rosie the Riveter” painting on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post (published May 29th, 1943).

“Rosie the Riveter” inspired a social movement that increased the number of working American women.

From 1940 – 1944 the number of women in America rose from 12 million to 20 million.

Today, there are currently 600,000 skilled manufacturing jobs in the USA that remain unfilled.

Women have the skills needed to fill these positions and unlike at the end of WWII, manufacturers today are keenly seeking women to fill the gap.
