Set Description and Contents:
Bishop’s most recognizable and numerous images are those of women from the 1930s and 1940s. By focusing on women in relatively low level jobs, Bishop created a document of women’s increasing participation in the American workforce. This presence increased dramatically during World War II. Bishop indicated that she felt the women she depicted all had the possibility for upward mobility in society.
