Contributor(s): Author: Ann Oakley Decades before the establishment of the earliest systems of Western social welfare, scores of intrepid women forged a path toward turning these theoretical ideas into reality. Their research lay the groundwork for the nascent welfare state in the early twentieth century. In Women, Peace and Welfare , Ann Oakley delves deep into the forgotten work of these so-called "dangerous women," focusing on the period between 1880 and 1920, using their stories to illuminate long-unexplored corners in the histories of social reform and pacifism. Oakley shows how their efforts--connected by thriving transnational networks in Europe, Africa, and the United States--provided information and inspiration for the earliest attempts to build the modern welfare state, as well as a powerful vision of humane living that resonates even today.
