During WWII, many women stepped up to complete work that was necessary for the war effort, that would have been typically performed by men, but with such a large portion of the male population away at war, was done by women. This image shows a young woman performing electrical work in an aircraft corporation. There is a playful juxtaposition between her electrical task and her floral dress and red lipstick, serving as a metaphor for the feminine presence in masculine spaces.
