War & Peace (Ivy & Orchids)


Ivy and Orchids is the second in my series War & Peace which juxtaposes the perception of the abilities and intelligence of women in the early 1940s with those of women in the early1950s.

Using a floral analogy to contrast the respect for the strength of women workers during the early 1940s with the delicacy assumed of women during the early 1950s.
