Notes

A striking series of anti-nuclear campaign postcards issued by The Women's Press, the leading feminist publishing house. They feature five slogans: with "Don't agonise, organise", quoted from Florynce Kennedy, the African American civil rights activist, feminist, and lawyer, and the other four ("A feminist world is a nuclear-free zone"; "Nuclear war: a fate worse than all our deaths"; "Who will inherit the earth?"; "Will the ashes of 'the enemy' look any different to our own?") composed by Stephanie Dowrick, co-founder of the The Women's Press. The Press, established in 1978, published a number of influential 20th-century feminist writers, and printed the first UK edition of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning work, The Color Purple.
These postcards were printed by the Press to publicise Keeping the Peace, published by the Press the following year. The first in a projected series of occasional women's peace handbooks, Keeping the Peace featured a collection of accounts from across the world by women's groups campaigning for peace and denuclearisation.
