WWII American Red Cross Home Front Poster (c. 1940s)

WWII American Red Cross Home Front Poster (c. 1940s)

American Red Cross poster featuring a sculpture by Malvina Cornell Hoffman.

During World War I, many women risked their lives to care for troops and took on active roles, as depicted in this poster seeking contributions for war relief efforts. Although women were still denied the right to vote, the government allowed them to serve in limited roles, ranging from dietitian to telephone operator. But the majority of women service members—more than 23,000 over the course of the war—were nurses. The government refused to grant American military nurses permanent commissioned rank and its accompanying benefits until after World War II.

Size*: 20" x 30"
Condition: Very Good

Rolled. Linen backed. Pencil marking on lower right corner of the linen. Micro tears on borders that linen backing makes much less noticeable. Beautiful color and will frame really well.
