It is Women’s History Month Thank you very much Carl D’Agonstino for reminding us, and of course for sharing some of our history with us! What a great collection!

The women in my family were all swallowed up into “work camps” by the war machinery in 1945. My Polish mumme was rescued by German soldiers fleeing West from Russia. She was 14 years old, and has worked for her living ever since. She is a harsh woman. I secretly call her She Wolf … oops, me guess it’s not a secret anymore … smiles … Love, cat.

Both of my grandmothers worked in factories during the war. One helped build B24s and the other build artillery pieces.

Such people are the mind, heart and backbone of America.

Excellent, Carl. Two weeks into March – I had better get something out myself for the women!!!!

Will look forward to it. I could have done one on women recruitment posters but went this way with it.

I think it looks great! Good choice – they did an awful lot to assist the war effort!

Look at one in second set from the top, bottom right corner. See the Scottie Dog ? I wonder if it was purposeful – FDR’s Fala ?

Great posters. Things went back to how they were after the war but not for long. The stage was set.

My mother was a typist clerk in the Brooklyn Navy Yard for $5 a week.

Interesting posters. They got women out of the home for the war effort, but when the war was over, women didn’t want to go back home.

It certainly changed our whole economy and understanding of women’s equality and societal contributive potential. Women in the work force was an unfortunate yet needed preparation for the exploitation of American workers by greedy capitalists creating the need for “two income” families.
