“Victory begins at home” was a common message during the war. With resources being shipped overseas, housewives were specifically targeted and reminded of their shared responsibility in winning the war on the home front—they had a “real war job.” (See "Jenny on the Job" tab for a comparison of posters directed toward women in the workforce.)
