Photo of the Day: Beyonce Recreates ‘Rosie the Riveter’ Poster

Beyonce We Can Do It Rosie the Riveter

Today (July 22) Beyonce recreated Rosie the Riveter’s legendary “We Can Do It” poster and uploaded it to her Instagram.

Rosie the Riveter is a fictional character who was created to honor the female factory workers who produced munitions and supplies during World War II. Since then, she has become a cultural icon and  symbol of feminism, often re-imagined by celebrities like Bey’s. This isn’t the first time the self-titled “modern day feminist,” incorporated views similar to the historic posters. Since she emerged on the entertainment scene, her music has been empowering women worldwide—especially her latest album, Beyonce.

Mrs. Carter is currently fighting off divorce rumors while jaunting on her joint “On the Run Tour” with hip hop hubby, Jay Z. Maybe this is a message to those who don’t want to see her have it all.
