"Jane Marsh, working for the NFB, made the only war propaganda that might reasonably be deemed unabashedly feminist: 1942's Women Are Warriors, about women on the front in Allied nations, and 1943's Proudly She Marches (which snarkily knocks down notions of women as little more than decorative objects for men's appreciation) and Wings on Her Shoulder, about the Woman's Division of the Royal Canadian Air Force."
