During WWII women in many countries had to do the jobs of their men away at war ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_r... ). This Finnish documentary from 1942 was meant to convince young women to volonteer for special work training camps to learn how to do farm work and household work.

The comment is in Finnish, but I put in some English subtitles. Anyway, the scenes speak for themselves...

Note the contrast between the cheerful voice of the commentator and the grumpy faces of some of the so called "eager farmworkers"...
