Some American women also
opposed the war. Before the war, a
number of leading American feminists,
including reformer Jane Addams,
formed the Women’s Peace Party and,
with pacifist women from other
countries, the Women’s International
League for Peace and Freedom.
Jeannette Rankin, the first
woman to serve in the U.S. House of
Representatives, voted against the
declaration of war. When America
joined the war, groups like the National
American Woman Suffrage Association
supported America’s war objectives.
