Powerful statement, Bob!
Its a fascinating series of stamps. I think that is Rosie the Riveter, so yes she could indeed do it, but unfortunately only until the men got back.
ive seen this picture used on a various occasions regarding women and their rights and sometimes even them being more superior than men...sometimes it really gets too feministic...and here, i also dont know what to think about 'women supporting war'?? or is it again to make them equal to men that women can go to battlefields as well and love it? women shouldnt be masculine...they are women after all!
great idea to show this stamp for today's theme - however i feel like i cannot properly comment on the subject, i should ask someone who has been a young woman at the time ;)
Very colourful design!
I think just about everyone in the U.S. supported that war.
This became such an iconic image and in a way it has been reinvented for a slightly different meaning than the original.
It was, in a way, a liberating time for women and a chance to prove they could be useful outside of the home.
A well known picture on this stamp!
Violet Sky was right, it was a very liberating time for women even if it was attempted to push them back to the kitchen sink after the war, many of them didn't go. Having worked in factories and other places, my mother worked at an RAF airport driving jeeps, towing planes, running VIPs around, very unlike her previous life.
Thank you for participating this week. Sorry I am late with my visit.
