Mothers' Movement also known as the Mothers' Crusade began with the February 5, 1941 Mothers’ March on Washington, a collation of anti-war women who wanted the United States to stay out of World War II. One leading and driving force of the movement was Elizabeth Dilling, an anti-communist and anti-Semitic researcher and author who once was indicted for sedition.
After the march several of these women went back home a started their own national or regional Mothers organization. By one estimate five to six million women may have been involved with the Mothers' Movement.
As the war continued the Mothers' Movement sought a negotiated peace with the Axis Powers.
Women’s Voice was a popular paper among the movement.
