You might recognize this iconic poster from World War II. What do you think was the main purpose of this poster?

A) To encourage women to join the Army
B) To start a new fashion trend among American women
C) To inspire women to join the war effort on the home front

Women played many important roles during World War II. While some worked with the military in the U.S. and overseas, most contributed from the home front: working in factories and offices, volunteering and organizing war efforts, and, of course, running households on their own. Women of the Revolution helped war efforts in many of the same ways.
