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.[1]

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.
