Sybil Andrews

This article offers a good analysis of one of Sybil Andrews linocuts. It has inspired me me to take a closer look at one of her works ("Rush Hour") that I have in my collection. The image shows the lower half of three figures walking over a crest or a wave presumably on there way to work. The first figure is obviously a man, the second a woman and the third of indistinguishable gender. Could this be a comment on her work as a welder at the airplane factory during the First World War? It seems that this type of work was probably male dominated until the war bought about the erosion of gender barriers in the work place.
