The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) was established in 1919 and replaced the WPP in the United States. Following the aims set forth by the WPP, the group’s primary emphasis continued to be “to promote methods for the attainment of that peace between nations which is based on justice and good will and to cooperate with women from other countries who are working for the same ends.”
The Records of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, U.S. Section, 1919-1959 is arranged in three series: Historical Records, Correspondence, and Serial Publications. The collection documents the wide range of methods the WILPF used for four decades-government lobbying, demonstrations, letter campaigns, speeches, publications, and grass-roots organizing-in their work for disarmament, civil rights, conscientious objectors, war refugees, and women’s rights.
