Aunt Matilda travelled to 1943 to meet this Rosie the Riveter that was inspiring so many women to work outside of their homes. She was surprised to meet Norman Rockwell instead. Surprised but not disappointed. Aunt Matilda was incredibly proud that even though the character was fictional, so many women took that moment to stand tall and embrace the workforce! We CAN do it! Rockwell gave Aunt Matilda the Metal Sign Rosie The Riveter as a parting gift of their meeting.
