When you think of WWII imagery, most likely Rosie the Riveter comes to mind. Naomi Parker Fraley, the woman who was the inspiration for the iconic poster, died this past Saturday at the age of 96. The New York Times wrote a beautiful piece on the woman behind the powerful image, and you should absolutely give it a read.
The “We Can Do It” poster has inspired countless people throughout the years, as well as countless comic book covers. Today I’m celebrating the life of Naomi Parker Fraley, and I encourage you to do so as well. She did it, and so can we.
