Good ole Rosie. You know, the gal with the red scarf and tough arm on the poster from back in the day? Well, that poster was thought to have been created from a real photograph taken near Ann Arbor, Michigan – which just happens to be the U.S. headquarters of Molly Maid.
Dozens of Rosies
We recently spotted Rosie here again as this year thousands of “Rosies” turned out for an event that broke the Guinness World record of the most Rosie the Riveters. The event was held at Willow Run Airport where the “Rosie” from the poster was said to work. The goal was to save the historic part of the airport which made bomber planes in World War II.
If you’re not familiar with the significance of Rosie, she’s a long-standing cultural icon representing the women’s movement into the workforce. Ironically though, the poster that we recognize was not actually called “Rosie the Riveter” during WWII when it was created. It was rediscovered in the 80s and became well-known with the rise of feminism.

Women in Business
At Molly Maid, women are the majority of our workforce. Most of our home service professionals are women. Many of our local business owners are also women, and as a company, we run a non-profit organization that helps many women around the country called the Ms. Molly Foundation. The foundation supports victims of domestic violence by providing assistance to local shelters and agencies.
If you want to celebrate strong women everywhere, tie on a red and white polka dot scarf. It’s a great (and pretty easy) Halloween costume for this year. Rosie the Riveter could be spotted at your workplace next!
