Entitled "Get behind the girl he left behind him Join the land army." Poster showing a young woman tending a garden, with a drawing of a soldier in the background. The Woman's Land Army of America (WLAA) was a civilian organization created during WWI to work in agriculture replacing men called up to the military. WLAA operated from 1917 to 1921, employing 15,000 - 20,000 urban women. Many were college educated, and units were associated with colleges. The WLAA was supported by Progressives like Theodore Roosevelt, and was strongest in the West and Northeast, where it was associated with the suffrage movement. Women who worked for the WLAA were sometimes known as farmerettes. The American Lithographic Company, 1918.
