WOMEN: Cause and Cure

There opened in Washington a women's conference—an event not unusual. But it happened that it was a "peace" conference and yet none of the many women's peace organizations was represented. The meeting was called the "Women's Conference on the Cause and Cure of War"—a misleading title since "cause" and "cure" were not equal objects.

Nine national women's organizations were each represented by 100 delegates and 100 alternates. They were:

The American Association of University Women.

The Federation of Women's Boards of Foreign Missions in North America.

The General Federation of Women's Clubs.

The Council of Women for Home Missions.
