War & Peace (Strings)

War & Peace (Strings)


Strings is the fourth 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 early 1950s.


This assemblage contrasts the important tasks assigned to women during World War II — such as parachute rigging — with the domestic duties imposed on them as soon as men returned home from the war.  


The Tuskegee airman patch in the upper left is a reminder that women were not the only fighters relegated to second class status after having helped win the war.
