Women of Britain, Come into the Factories
Female empowerment was the focus of this Philip Zec (1909-1983) poster encouraging women into war industry for the good of the nation. A Jewish socialist, Zec’s work has been compared to early Soviet propaganda putting a grand and heroic face on manual labor. Posters like this aimed to show a direct link between civilian workers at home and the fighting men on front, here symbolized by the line of fighter planes ‘leaving’ the factory.
