The women's peace movement coalesced in the Bay Area around the founding of the San Francisco Women for Peace (WfP) by women from the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) in 1961. The national "parent" organization of WfP, known as Women Strike for Peace (WSP), was established at the same time. The San Francisco branches of WfP and WILPF maintained a joint office (the Women's Peace Office) since 1962. The two group's membership and activities often overlapped, and the organizations often joined forces on numerous yearly and extended campaigns. [LMC]
