WWI Propaganda is best animated in posters used to influence civilians to help the war effort. The propaganda influenced all different races and both genders with the goal of funding the entire war effort. Propaganda also targeted certain states within the United States. One state that they targeted was Connecticut. Connecticut is a rather small state, but it held a strong value. Connecticut became one of the lead producers of weapons and materials for the military. Connecticut was a major asset in the victory of the allies during WWI, and it helped continue throughout WWII as well. Connecticut propaganda was specific and it targeted middle class people, woman, and the youth (specifically young adults from 18-22 years of age). The way Connecticut held its propaganda was very strategic and became beneficial throughout the war.
I want to explore first how Connecticut targeted woman to join the WWI war efforts. The strategic minds of the military specifically got woman to work roles that were typical to a role of a man, in order to supply the troops and have the ability to send over more troops from the United States. The propaganda used to lure woman into the workforce was very well thought out and intricate. The propaganda writers wanted to appeal to woman and make them feel equal and important. This proved to be effective and became a major asset in funding the war efforts.
