Promoting Home Front Contributions by Women to Victory Abroad

In World War II, posters promoted the idea that victory begins at home, with sacrifices, effort, and preserving certain goods for the war. This effort was usually directed at women, and these sacrifices and efforts were a key way that women -- who were not recruited into the military in as large numbers as men -- could contribute to the war effort. Here are some of the posters of World War II promoting the home front effort to support victory abroad.
