AP US History

World War II Posters of American Women

Preparing for the AP US History Exam

The APUSH exam is devoting more and more attention to women’s history. World War II posters provide a noncontroversial way to emphasize the important role women played in supporting America’s wartime mobilization. Check out the following four examples:
1. The more Women at Work the Sooner we WIN!
2. Soldiers without guns
3. Keep ‘Em Flying, Miss USA
4 Victory Waits on Your Fingers

We can do it!
