Worker Wednesday

The July 1943 issue of the Higgins Industries publication, the Eureka News Bulletin featured this cartoon, courtesy of the Ingalls News (Ingalls Shipbuilding, Pascagoula, MS). Although Rosie the Riveter is now the most well known characterization of the female worker during WWII, other figures stood beside her (some clad in bathing suits). Bertha the Burner, Wendy the Welder and Jenny on the Job were just a few of the others.
