Our Grandmother’s Peace Yesterday and Today
NAFOW Off-Season, Seminar recorded on March 20, 2022
A century ago almost 400,000 women in Wales signed a petition to be sent to the women of the United States urging them to demand that the US join the League of Nations, work together “in a limitation of naval armaments”, stop the trafficking of women and drugs, and join the Permanent Court of International Justice. Three Welsh women traveled to the US and presented the appeal to leaders of many of the leading women’s organizations; they also met President Coolidge. The petition has been housed in the National Museum of American History since those days. Today Women in Wales, and in North America, are preparing to remember, celebrate and realize the dream for a warless world.
