Efstathiadou, A., ‘Female Images: Visual Representation of Women in Greek and British Propaganda Posters During the Second World War’
PhD thesis registered, January, 2000. Cardiff University
Anna’s research, a comparative study between Greece and UK, aims to examine the way women were represented in propaganda posters during the years 1939-1945. Aspects of history, society and politics consist the backbone of the study, moving on to specific issues of gender, propaganda and the meaning and power of visual images.
The special interest of this research lies on the fact that it is the first Greek attempt to collect, comment and compare Greek posters of females. There are collections of Greek posters but mostly as illustrations for collectors.
