Mothers of the Far Right: The Mothers Movement and World War II


Learn about an unusual grop of anti-war women who opposed American participation in World War II on the grounds that the U.S. was fighting the wrong enemies.  America should side with Germany against Russia and Britain.  The British had actually bombed Pearl Harbor.  Hitler was a liberator.  Franklin D. Roosevelt was a Jewish dictator.  Millions of women strong, concentrated in the Midwest, marched on Washington, wrote books and tracts , and tried to defeat pro-war legislation.  Based on his book, Women of the Far Right, Jeansonne dissects a movement that is an aberration among women's groups of that time.
