War & Peace (Transport)

War & Peace (Transport)

The War & Peace series highlights the difference between the perception of the intelligence and ability of women in the early 1940s (when the US government sought to recruit them in the war effort) and the postwar years (when women were expected to return to domestic duties).  


Inspired by a World War II recruiting poster, Transport juxtaposes the range of vehicles on which women were expected to work in the 1940s with women’s postwar opportunities.
