Peace as a Women's Issueidentifies and follows the four most consistent and well-developed themes within the movement's history: the connection often made between militarism and violence against women; the idea that women are the "mother" of society and therefore inherently against war; the belief that women are prone by nature to act as responsible citizens; and the desire many women feel to be independent of male control.
This long-awaited history of the feminist peace movement in the United States makes possible a fuller, better nuanced, and more balanced treatment of the history of the entire U.S. peace movement. It will be of great interest to historians, students, and scholars of women's studies and peace studies as well as to those interested in actively working toward peace, justice, and equality.
