women and propaganda

i found it be interesting how women were used in the war in effort. and i say used because women didnt have many rights and they were looked upon as meek and frail, not fit for battle. it was very interesting the propaganda that was used to employ women for the armed force use on the homefront. the packet appealed to emotion. women and children being tortured by the enemy. i think the main point here is that whereas in these advertisements, women were made to look strong but after the end of the war, thing returned to normal or worse. women were housewives and sex symbols.

It is interesting to note the shift in the images of women during the war and after the war. Try to comment on a specific document or image. Images of strong women were a big part of WWII propaganda.
