It is little known that Geraldine Hoff, the girl from the famous Rosie The Riveter poster was as far removed from the feminist ideal of the strong independent working woman as can be.

She quit her job as a riveter after two weeks because she didn’t want to hurt her hands, and soon after, at an office job, met and married a dentist. Thanks to her husband, she lived a comfortable life as a suburban mother and office manager at his clinic. She was a good, honest woman; unlike the ideologues who turned her into the patron saint of women who do men’s work.

I’m a libertarian, atheist, skeptic, and free thinker. Feel free to disagree with me and criticise my work; while democracy and civil liberties still exist, that’s everyone’s right.
