War Gains? World War: a settlement of conflict between rulers, the need to gain command over new territory. The domination of other countries: business must expand. Appeals to manhood and heroism served to reassure men sent off to fignt (more reassurance came from the war films later: the national cause was justified, the "natural " role of the warrior was fulfilled.) On her their lives depend [cut off] Women engineers want to carry on By The Industrial Correspondent [...] Women of Britain Come Into The Factories The Call House & Garden [illegible] Dual-role Advice to the Bride Save Yourself The Chores by choosing equipment that is genuinely labour-saving [illegible] Recall Women were directed into factories and offices to support the war effort (no talk of a 'Woman's Place' now). The dual-role of looking after children as well as working for the war was eased by some state provision of day nurseries and restaurants. After the war, these were closed down, pushing women back into the home to rear a new generation to replace the war dead. by Poster-Film Collective with financial assistance from Greater London Arts Association.
