Outside Showa 1930s Unknown

Japanese wartime propaganda postcard from the late 1930s intended to promote home front civilian support for the war.

Members of the Women’s Society for National Defense (国防婦人会, Kokubo Fujinkai) visit a family.

The Kokubo Fujinkai was a patriotic women’s association active between 1932 (Showa 7) and 1942 (Showa 17). The role of such organizations was to encourage patriotism and to define the ideal relation between women and the nation, generally by emphasizing home and motherhood.
