Joseph Pennell's Finishing Shells breaks the mold of traditional “women’s work” by showing women in an industrial setting. With two years into World War I and two still yet to go, women were a much needed labor force in the factories on the hone front. In Pennell's lithograph, men and women alike labor to make weaponry for the war effort.
