#AnniesDiary100: Retracing the steps of Wales’ 1924 Womens Peace Appeal America Tour, #OnThisDay Feb-March 1924

Over February – March 2024, WCIA with Academi Heddwch will be ‘Tweeting from the 20s’. Through social media (WCIA’s Twitter/ X and Facebook feeds), we will be retracing the steps recounted by ‘Annie’s Diary‘, the little black book kept by Wales’ Women’s Peace Appeal delegation leader Annie Hughes Griffiths, as they embarked on their 2 month ‘Peace Tour’ of the United States between 2nd February and 29th March 1924. 

Annie Hughes Griffiths was one of the first Chairs and Presidents of WCIA’s predecessor Welsh League of Nations Union (WLNU) in the 1920s. She was a key leader of – though just one of no less than 390,296 signatories to – the Welsh Women’s Peace Appeal to America of 1924. The centenary project ‘Hawlio Heddwch’ will aim to give voice to these women of peace – can you help realise their legacy?
