Rosie the Riveter

I really wanted to dress up as Rosie the Riveter for Halloween 2010 after seeing this awesome image on the cover of the Economist.

Then I realized that it was just around this time (hello WWII) that American citizens who looked just like me were forcibly held in internment camps for years and years.

Dilemma. This is the paradox of being part of American history.

  1. I think that the business with the internment camps would make you dressing up like her interesting and subversive, personally, although of course I get where other people might see it differently
