The Red Cross Calls on Women to Knit Socks in World War I Propaganda Poster
During World War I, women couldn’t serve in the army, but they could help in other ways.

This poster, produced by the American Red Cross, encouraged women to knit socks for soldiers.

Most military-issue garments were produced in factories – the poster’s goal was not to increase the production of socks.

Instead, it aimed to generate a patriotic spirit of collective involvement.

Like any effective propaganda, this poster connects a simple action to a broader goal.
