One Woman’s Way to Peace: The Development of Vera Brittain’s Pacifism

Wednesday 6 April 2022

Mellown, Muriel. 1985. Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies 8, no. 2: 1–6.

This text focuses on the life and work of British author Vera Brittain who lived through the horrors of the First World War and asserted that humanity should never experience such horrors again. The article examines Brittain’s activism, which occurred at a time when female suffrage was a major social issue in the United Kingdom, through the lens of the oftentimes-tenuous relationship between Feminism and Pacifism, two causes which, for all of their conflict, sought do directly combat systemic oppression and injustice within British society.
