Be ready for:

This is the kind of definition and explanation I’m looking for:
Propaganda is biased information that appeals more to emotion than reason to further a cause or point of view. During World War II, there was a good deal of propaganda urging women to leave the home to work in jobs that were traditionally only for men (such as bus drivers, factory workers, etc). After the war, women were expected to return to traditional “women’s work”. This inequality encouraged many more women to lobby the United States government to pass laws guaranteeing equal rights for women.
