She was supporting the women by saying that if they could pass the same tests as their fellow men pilots, then they should be given the same opportunity to join in noncombat service. During World War II, women had to rise to the occasion in order to help their country in a time of desperate need. With most of the American men serving in the army and other branches of the armed forces, women stepped up and took their place. Some chose to stay closer to home and took men’s everyday jobs in order to keep the country running regularly.

She expressed her independence and views on feminism through her traditionally masculine clothing like pants, while also cutting her hair short (Slabach).

The Rosie the government made has a resemblance to Rockwell’s Rosie, but she is less masculine. This propaganda poster of Rosie the Riveter employed by the United States government was popular because she appealed to the sense of patriotism and common goal of the Second World War. Upgraded Rosie also showed that women could retain their femininity and womanhood in their service. Every Rosie the Riveter image played to this prevailing sense of patriotism that abounded in America during World War II. Patriotism was used as a primary motivator to recruit women for war work.

Many historians believe the war to be a turning point because not only did it seal women's victory over the government it secured their status in society as an equivalent to men. Women's emancipation came in three stages: the first was the long campaign of propaganda and organisation led by the dame Millicent Fawcett, the second was militant campaign of the suffragettes, and the third was the war. Had there been no war, the emancipation would have come, although more slowly. Therefore the war was not the most significant factor which led to the franchise.
