We can do it.


Who is this and in context to what did it originate? What was the inspiration for this character?











Answer: She is Pari the Protestor, based on Rosie the Riveter. You can see the green band that Pari is wearing. A reference to the Iran election fiasco and the Green Band Revolution that followed. Google for more. :-)
While everyone partly got it correct, Rohit managed to work it out completely, albeit with a little help. :-)

quoting wikipedia "Rosie the Riveter" is a cultural icon of the United States, representing the American women who worked in factories during World War II,many of whom worked in the manufacturing plants that produced munitions and war supplies. These women sometimes took entirely new jobs replacing the male workers who were in the military.The character is considered a feminist icon in the US.

Inspired by 'Rosy the Riveter', this character was used by the supporters of Mir-Houssein Mousavi as a symbol of protest against the re-election of Ahmedinejad as the president of Iran. Green bands were worn as green is the color of Mousavi's party flag.
