We are seeking a third paper for a panel on women, gender, and internationalism for the January 2007 AHA conference. Our first paper analyzes the activism of Esther Pohl Lovejoy, M.D., and the Medical Women's International Association. The MWIA pursued a vision that connected women physicians across national boundaries to build a progressive program of international health care and to challenge national policies such as war that put women's health and safety at risk. The second paper analyzes the ways in which women activists, especially members of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, worked to reconcile the former belligerents after the First War; this study reveals the interplay between official international reconciliation, such as the treaty, and the postwar return to "gender normalcy."
If interested, please respond to the email address here. Thanks!
