Just a good afternoon's work!



DescriptionA cartoon image, depicting a female part-time war worker striking Hitler in the face, with the slogan: ˜Just a good afternoon's work!' The catalogue entry adds: ˜part-time jobs now open in local war factories'. As men fought on the front, women were encouraged to take on extra work in the factories, the fields, and the armed forces support services. The government went some way towards trying to accommodate women in their joint roles, pioneering the use of nurseries, and using schemes whereby two married women could job-share, each putting in a half shift.
