This volume seeks to contribute to the understanding of the accomplishments of women in peace, preparedness, relief, and suffrage organizations between 1914 and 1920. The book traces the organizational history of the Woman's Peace party and the American Union against Militarism, noting interesting contrasts between the two groups. Moving beyond an exclusive emphasis on the leaders of the Woman's Peace party, the author argues that the party's willingness to allow diverse local activities and not to require more than the "substantial agreement" with party platforms enabled it to avoid many of the divisive questions that led to the splintering of the American Union against Militarism.
