Outside organizations: Peace, 1932-1940

 File — Box: 2, Reel: 121, microdex: 4

Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the Peace and Disarmament Committee of the Women's International Organizations, an international association of women's groups to advocate for and support peaceful conflict resolution, the peaceful change of global economic and political conditions, the reduction and limitations of arms and "collective action" to prevent or stop impediments to world peace. The committee seeks to accomplish these goals through communication, education and enlisting the support of women globally through bulletins, conferences, lectures and press releases. As tensions in Europe rise, the bulletins address topics such as refugee needs, economic change, political tensions and civilians affected by war.
