Women’s Peace Appeal Centenary, 2023-24 – Home

In 1923-24, 390,296 women from Wales signed an appeal to the women of America calling for world peace. Over 2023-24, we will be celebrating their efforts and legacy through the Academi Heddwch partnership, and National Lottery Heritage Funded project ‘Hawlio Heddwch’. Might you discover ancestors or individuals from your own communities? Can you play a part in rediscovering a generation of Welsh women’s stories? Join us in uncovering this previously ‘hidden history’, and bringing to life the vision of Welsh women whose legacy aspired to be “the proud heritage of a warless world.”
