Harriet Hyman Alonso (au). Traces the development of the women’s campaign for peace in the U.S. from its roots in 19th-cent. abolitionist & suffrage movements to the Persian Gulf War. The WILPF takes center stage; but many other groups, ranging from the Women’s Peace Union to Women Strike for Peace, Women for Racial & Economic Equality, & the peace encampments, are also examined. Covers the 4 most consistent themes within the movement’s history: the connection between militarism & violence against women; women are the “mothers” of society & therefore inherently against war; women are prone by nature to act as responsible citizens; & the desire many women feel to be independent of male control. Illus.
