Woman Operating a Machine at an Orange Packing Plant, 1943

Rosie the Riveter was a general name for women who took on jobs in factories during World War II when male workers were away at war. This woman operated a machine putting the tops on crates at a co-op orange packing plant in Redlands, California.

"Keeping the home fires burning" during the absence of men fighting wars has been a woman's role. During World War II, that meant taking on jobs that had been men's jobs -- not only for the war industry itself, but in other factories and plants, like this orange packing plant in Redlands, California. The photograph, part of the U.S. Office of War Information collection at the Library of Congress, is dated March, 1943.
