Leslie Knope as Rosie the Riveter
Show: Parks and Recreation
If there was ever a television character who summed up Rosie’s “We can do it!” spirit, it’s Pawnee’s Leslie Knope. With her feminism-informed go-getter attitude and willingness to take on any job, it was fitting that Leslie chose the female pioneer costume for the Parks Department Halloween screening of Death Canoe 4 during Season 5. Bonus points: Her BFF Ann chose a topical (at the time) costume, dressing up as Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas.
