Victory Job Australian WW2 Propaganda Wooden Poster
The massive expansion of the military caused a serious shortage of men in Australia’s labour force. For the first time, women were encouraged to work in industry. Although the actual increase of women in paid employment was only 5%, many women moved from traditional “feminine” roles as domestic servants to “male” factory jobs. However, after the war, many women were forced out of the traditionally male-dominated jobs that they were performing.
This is an original piece of Australian propaganda that came out around 1940.
The poster is baked on sturdy, durable wood through a process known as "decoupage". It comes ready to hang and is guaranteed to stand out wherever you decide to place it.
*Each sign is handcrafted individually, so keep in mind that the final result may vary slightly.
