Such a fascinating book! It discusses the Wartime Emergency Laws for WWI (sedition/espionage) and the women who got prosecuted for being anti-war. I love the concept of "republican womanhood" where women were just viewed to produce and raise soldiers for the country. Its so creepy our country reduced the image of women to their basic function. Hopefully this concept never gets applied again during wartime.
