Patricia Ward D'Itri

Popular Press

This book portrays individuals, organizations, and events that contributed to the development of the world movement for women's rights between 1848 and 1948. Individual efforts in a number of countries preceded the first Women's Rights Convention called in the United States in 1848. Small women's rights groups evolved into national and international organizations. Under Carrie Chapman Catt's leadership, national organizations were incorporated from around the world before the First World War. Then international leaders joined together to promote peace and form the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
