Spirit of Rosie The Riveter embraced by American manufacturer
Remember the story of Rosie the Riveter? She was the symbol of American women working in factories and other jobs previously closed to women, because most able-bodied American men were off fighting World War II.
The name--a variation of it, anyway--has resurfaced in a company that makes handbags and other products, using the labor of military spouses across the country.
R. Riveter is the brainchild of Cameron Cruse, herself a military spouse living at Fort Bragg (the other one, in North Carolina).
Cameron Cruse visits the JX to talk about her business.
