How Did Women Peace Activists Respond to “Red Scare” Attacks during the 1920s?

0

Abstract This project examines how the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) responded to anti-socialist intimidation during the 1920s. This second “red scare” targeted the women’s peace movement during a period of armaments buildup following World War I. WILPF, although powerless to halt the persistent attacks, contested them with dignity and restraint.
