Cx Number:  CX3236

Barbara Roberts examines the effort of Canadian women in the international peace network of the early twentieth century. In this paper she provides us with biographical portraits of Laura Hughes., Frances Marion Benyon, Violet McNaughton, and Gertrude Richardson, four leading feminist pacifists of that era. These portraits give us a glimpse of the women's peace organizations as well as the farm, labour and socialist movements of the day. The author "raises interesting questions about the complexities of female resistance to war -- its sources, motivations nad organizational formaitons."
