The Spirit of Woman-Power

Paul Honore - 1918

The poster illustrates women "on the march." The most prominent woman taps the drum beat in military fashion, one on the left carries a food basket, and the one on the right sheaves of wheat. The artist gives the sense of many women in the background. The lowest line of print reads, "Woman's Committee of Council of National Defense, Michigan Division. Women are asked to register between April 27 and May 4 (1918) for their contributions to the war effort during World War I.
