What were the goals and how effective was American propaganda aimed toward women during World War 2?

I'm sure we've all seen the poster of a woman flexing her arm saying, "We can do it!" This was aimed toward virtually all able-bodied women in America, urging them to join the workforce, to produce supplies for the war overseas. In my personal oppinion, this campaign was very effective. During the end of 43 and into 44, American factories were producing more aircraft and ammo and tanks than ever before.
