"Her radical style combined militant civil disobedience with political activism. The combination of her energy, daring and political savvy spurred the movement on to its goal of enfranchising American women with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution in 1920." Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt. Although this first book, written during World War I, is a feminist view in favor of war as providing equality of work for women, she returned to the peace movement after seeing the ravages which war had brought to Europe and her second book, published in 1920 was ' A Woman's Point of View, Some Roads to Peace'. Illustrated with a frontispiece and 12 photographic plates - showing women 'comfortably and becoming garbed for working in a factory', pulling a plow in France, with an ambulance equipped with an xray machine set up by Marie Curie, and working in the Erie Railroad workshop.

For example, ""Then a flying column marches out and administers what is humorously described as Ôa little injustice.Õ That is, they burn a reed-hut village or two and maybe gather up some plunder on their own account in the form of flocks and herds. "It is a cheerful little game, but it is very rapidly losing its popularity among the Arabs." (p 225.)
