Arise, then, women of this day!
Say firmly: "We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies,
"Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
From the bosom of the devastated Earth a voice goes up with our own. It says: "Disarm! Disarm!"
As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil at the summons of war, Let women now leave all that may be left of home for a great and earnest day of counsel.
Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means Whereby the great human family can live in peace,
