Ballots, Babies, and Banners of Peace


by Melissa R. Klapper

Written in an engaging style, Ballots, Babies, and Banners of Peace demonstrates that no history of the suffrage, birth control, or peace movements in the United States is complete without analyzing the impact of Jewish women's presence. Melissa R. Klapper uses voluminous personal papers and institutional records to paint a vivid picture of a world in which both middle-class and working-class American Jewish women were consistently and publicly engaged in all major issues of their day and worked closely with their non-Jewish counterparts on behalf of activist causes.
