The Women's Peace Union (WPU) grew out of the women's suffrage movement of the early twentieth century.

Drawing on a wealth of primary materials, Alonso traces the lineage of today's women's peace movement from Garrisonian abolitionism through the suffrage movement groups such as the WPU to contemporary efforts of the Seneca Women's Peace Encampment

A study of the Women's Peace Union illustrates what some suffragists did after winning the vote and how pacifists tried to heal a world recently torn apart by war. For former suffragists, the period after World War I presented a unique challenge; that is, how to utilize existing organizations and the newly won vote to achieve world peace. For the Women's Peace Union, the answer lay[s] within the suffragist movement itself. Adapting the ideas of Salmon O. Levinson, the founder of the Outlawry of War movement, the WPU leaders, including Elinor Byrns, Caroline Lexcow Babcock, Tracey Mygatt, Gertrude Franchot Tone, Frieda Langer Lazarus and, for six months, Jeannette Rankin, wrote and campaigned for a constitutional amendment to outlaw war and the manufacturing and trading of war materiel. As powerless individuals in a patriarchal society, the women, through extensive lobbying, found a male senator, Lynn Joseph Frazier, to espouse their cause. Frazier, a North Dakota populist, introduced the amendment into every Congressional session from 1936 to 1939. The WPU also organized three Senate hearings (1927, 1930 and 1934) and sent a representative to the League of Nations Disarmament Conference in Geneva in 1932 to campaign for international outlawry laws. Although strong and active in the 1920s, the WPU faced many problems in the 1930s. First, Depression economics greatly limited their finances. Second, their uncompromising pacifist position and one issue program isolated them from the majority of the other peace activities. Third, their concentration on cultivating high-level politicians prevented grassroots organizing. Finally, their Utopian vision inhibited the adaption of their demands to the 1930s growth of fascism and militarism. Although never officially disbanded, the WPU ceased operations in 1941, just before Pearl Harbor was attacked
