Summary
"In the late 1930s, a number of American women - especially those allied with various peace and isolationist groups - protested against the nation's entry into World War II. While their story is fairly well known, Margaret Paton-Walsh reveals a far less familiar story of women who fervently felt that American intervention was absolutely necessary." "Paton-Walsh recounts how the United States became involved in the war, but does so through the eyes of American women who faced it as a necessary evil. Covering the period between 1935 and 1941, she examines how these women functioned as political actors - even though they were excluded from positions of power - through activism in women's organizations, informal women's networks, and even male-dominated lobbying groups."--Jacket
