As a category, motherhood received much less attention that the previous categories.
The catagorey received so little attention that the posters shown here are unsigned.
Women as victims was also a very small category and the women in the posters were always depicted as Europeans, which surprised me because we had so many women serving with agencies in France. It seems to me it would have been natural to depict those women in peril which would have greater emotional impact on Americans and would have further elevated the women's status.
These next two posters are typical of the women as victims category.

If any of you have similar wartime posters from WWI or WWII, please post them so that we can compare how the various nations handled the way they depicted women in war. Dwight
