This iconic image (often called Rosie the Riveter) is drawn from an American wartime propaganda poster produced by J. Howard Miller in 1943.
The quote "Well-behaved women seldom make history" was first spoken by author Laurel Thatcher Ulrich (born July 11, 1938). Ulrich is an American historian of early America and the history of women and a professor at Harvard University. Her book "Well-Behaved Women" examines the ways in which women shaped history, citing examples from the lives of Rosa Parks, Christine de Pizan, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman, and Virginia Woolf.
