Week 9: Propaganda in Advertising

By: Brenda Romero

The propaganda poster I chose is “Soldier without Guns” (1941-1945). It shows women without guns helping in the war efforts by picking up jobs back at home. The two techniques that were used are virtue of words and slogans. The techniques are used as attention grabbers. They promote patriotism of women war efforts with using the word soldier without guns.

Here is the link to the poster
