Women At War Exhibition Mug


Souvenir mug for our exhibition of posters issued during World War Two - Fighting On All Fronts: Women At War.

This exhibition held at our gallery from International Women's Day to Victory Day (8 March to 9 May) focuses on the role of women during WWII featuring posters issued by both Allied and Axis powers, in particular the UK, USA, USSR and some Nazi-occupied countries.

Labour shortages on the home front during the Second World War led to dramatic changes to the role of women in society. Jobs in factories, agriculture, nursing and other vital military and civilian industries that were previously seen as occupations mainly for men were now opened up to women. Posters played a big part in the publicity campaigns, using patriotic appeal to encourage women to help win the war and secure victory by joining the workforce.

The exhibition shows how poster design and visual messaging varied in the different countries depending on the impact of war on the population and the roles of women in the conflict. Although they replaced men in the war production in all countries, women's day-to-day realities were very different.

Gallery Address: AntikBar Original Vintage Posters, 404 King's Road, Chelsea, London SW10 0LJ.

Our Programme of Events & Talks includes a guest speaker from the Imperial War Museum and a cabaret performance. Spaces are limited for these events.
