Women of Wednesday--Danger--Women at Work

More today about working women. Here's bit of propaganda from World War II when women were actively encouraged to go out and work. Of course, when the war ended, they were expected to rush back to their lives as housewives, and leave the jobs for the men.

But, while they were allowed to work, the women did a man's job, and everyone worked together to defeat "our enemies."

Oooo, I love hearing the line, "Don't be afraid to eat what's good for you," and seeing a huge chunk of cake that would choke a horse!

I always learn something new from these posts. Today's new phrase: debutante slouch. Evidently, that way of standing was supposed to look attractive. Hmmmm...
