Women of Peace and Preparedness


Sunday March 11, 2018
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Presented by Dr. Lisa Mastrangelo in the Library's Lower Level Meeting Room.

While much attention has been paid to the role of American women in World War II, much less is known about their participation in World War I. And yet, on the eve of US involvement in the Great War, American women were active in two different movements: the peace movement and the preparedness movement. Throughout both of these movements, women were labeled as "maternal" and "protective." This presentation details the two movements, as well as the language of motherhood that was used for, by, and against the women as they fought for their causes.

Dr. Lisa Mastrangelo is an Associate Professor of English and Director of Composition at Centenary University in Hackettstown, NJ.
