Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Before the outbreak of that great all consuming First World War, there was a women led peace movement by America and Europe to end all wars. Women made themselves heard because wars were initiated and led by men, the movement coincided with the women suffrage for voting rights. A start of emancipation after the men lifted from slavery had hitting the right to vote decades earlier.

Similarly, the second WW was a push for women to participate in the work force, to do the jobs of men who were fighting at the front. Another step towards emancipation and later on feminism.

I have written about this movement and several of the leading women. There were peace movements because if too many stupid wars started by the ego of men in power.
