"In 1915, shortly after the outbreak of World War I, more than twelve hundred women representing twelve nations journeyed to The Netherlands to plead for peace at The Hague. At this first International Congress of Women they called for "continuous mediation" until peace was restored, and two delegations met with representatives of the warring governments. Although they did not stop the war, their proposals are still used as guidelines for most diplomatic negotiations between hostile nations." "Three highly talented, progressive women led the American delegation. Jane Addams, the cofounder of Hull-House in Chicago, won the 1931 Nobel Peace Prize for her career of public service and advocacy for peace. Emily G. Balch, a distinguished sociologist who taught at Wellesley College and was the longtime International Secretary of the later-founded Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, also was honored in 1946 with the Nobel Peace Prize. Alice Hamilton, a medical investigator and social activist, was the first woman to join the faculty of Harvard University." "Women at The Hague is the firsthand report by these three women of their mission for peace. With an illuminating introduction by University of Nebraska scholar Mary Jo Deegan, recognized by the American Sociological Association in 2002 for her distinguished scholarly career, this new edition of a valuable historical document will be of interest to students of women's studies, history, and international relations."--Jacket.
