Care for her through the YWCA, 1918

Treidler, Adolf poster: Care for her through the YWCA

This charming and highly effective poster was created for the YWCA, which played an important role in improving the welfare of women throughout WWI. It highlights the emergence of the female industrial worker, who proved to be a versatile and skilled performer. The YWCA advocated for women’s rights in the workplace, limiting lengthy shifts and prohibiting night work.

Treidler, a skilled and prolific illustrator, particularly enjoyed creating this poster - his model was so captivating that he married her. One of the most charming posters of WWI.
