Rosie The Riveter Dead at 86

No, I don't mean that symbolically. I mean that Geraldine Hoff Doyle, the woman whose image was the basis for the famous "Rosie the Riveter" died Sunday at age 86.

Rosie is survived by tens of millions of women who joined the workforce. Sadly, the industrial economy she helped build predeceased her after a long illness.
