Cartoon: Roshan the Riveter

“Rosie the Riveter” is iconic representation of American women who worked in manufacturing plants during World War II to help with the fight against fascism in Europe.

I’ve seen a cartoon of an Iranian woman in a black veil with the same pose, but I can not find it now otherwise I would’ve provided a link to it (update: here is a picture of a placard used in the San Francisco rally, but still I think there is another cartoon of the same pose somewhere). 

When I was in the Saturday’s Mega Rally in San Francisco I saw a photo journalist, Nazy Kaviani, taking a picture of a woman with a green band around her arm.  I put two and two together and here is my version of Iranian “Roshan the Riveter”, !روشن پرچ کُن.
