(2004): Propaganda Banknote Leaflets of the Vietnam War. (cit. 2012-11-09) MESSAGE. Women opposed to violence should go for men who are resisting the military draft. Appealing more to the subjective side, when the topic needs so many reasons-to-believe. Visual elements BACKSTORY, 1968. The U.S folk singer, Joan Baez, along with her sisters encouraged draft resistance and raising money for that. INTERPRETATION.
