The international issue that gained the most women supporters in the early 1900s was the call for peace, especially after World War I started.
Also, there were several large meetings of European and American women on common issues concerning women’s rights.
In addition, women from different ethnic groups took action on issues involving their people.
In the early 1900s, for example, Henrietta Szold became a leader in the Zionist movement, which called for a Jewish state in Palestine. She helped start a women’s group, Hadassah, to support this cause.
In 1910 a number of Chicanas organized support for the liberal democratic forces during the Mexican Revolution, and several Chinese American women raised money to help the 1911 Chinese Revolution, which established a brief period of democracy in China.
