Addams discusses her work with the International Congress of Women, the delegations to European leaders, and her views on the need for peace. The event was held at the Chicago Auditorium and attended by both peace activists and the general public, and chaired by Charles L. Hutchinson.
Addams reports the efforts of the International Congress of Women, the delegations to heads of European countries, and her views on peace. The speech was given at Carnegie Hall on July 9 and published on July 31, 1915.
Addams argues that international peace is not a failed idea, and even though World War One is in the early stages of fighting it is not to late to stop war from continuing. Bryan also claims that peace is possible with mediation.
