Poster publicizing the April 24 demonstrations against the Vietnam War in Washington, DC and and San Francisco, encouraging female participation, 1971. United Women's Contingent, Washington.
Depicts a group of women protesting the war. Claims that a large majority of American women disapprove of the Vietnam War, and suggests that their opposition, if fully registered, will bring about an end to the conflict.
The April 24 demonstrations saw as many as half a million people march against the war. The United Women's Contingent was one of several groups responsible for publicizing and organizing the largescale acts of civil disobedience that came to typify the Vietnam period in American history.
A scarce anti-war poster from the period.
