A propaganda poster from World War 1 shows that at that time women were definitely more appreciated - as it should. It clearly tells you to help the female in danger.

More details follow:

"DESTROY THIS MAD BRUTE" is the caption of this World War I propaganda poster for enlistment in the US Army. A dribbling, ape-like German wielding a club bearing the word "kultur" and wearing a pickelhaube helmet with the word "militarism" is walking onto the shore of America while holding a half-naked woman in his grasp (possible meant to depict Liberty). This is a US version of an earlier British poster with the same image. Dated ca 1917.
