https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a2xYvXwGiw

Documentary (24mins) about the women who tried to stop World War One - Churchill called them 'These Dangerous Women'. In April 1915, 1300 women from 12 countries called a Congress at The Hague, Holland to protest against the destruction caused by the war and to find a way to peace. They elected an international team of five envoys who travelled Europe and the USA visiting 14 belligerent and neutral countries, and meeting with 24 influential leaders: Prime Ministers, Foreign Ministers, Presidents, the King of Norway and the Pope.
