Created in 1944 as recruitment and enlistment material, this poster encouraged women to join the auxiliary forces to assist the armed services in World War II. We think it makes a nice canvas print and are pleased to offer it here, perfectly sized for display at home or office.
During World War I, many branches of the federal government used posters to urge Americans to support the war effort. In a time without radio, TV, or the Internet, posters were an inexpensive way to deliver powerful messages to millions of people. The government hired well-known artists to create designs that unified the American people. Posters continued to be published during World War II, and new posters are still in production. The National Archives holds close to 20,000 posters produced by military and civilian agencies.
