It seems as if the government was trying to appeal to new ideas. Women wanted power, and they had the vote, so by depicting them as strong and useful was recognition of who they were and who they were becoming. Also, the men needed an emotional quality if they were to be drug into war. By creating hatred against mainly the Germans and Japanese, they were covering feelings of fear and doubt with hate and testosterone.
How do you think patriotic views of the public were aroused?
