In early 1918 girls aged 11 to 16 were invited by the French Ministry of Education to design posters on the theme of homeland restrictions. The results were impressive: the posters by the “Écolières de Paris” (Paris schoolgirls) could be seen in Paris shop windows, and they were enthusiastically received by the press.
