Women Against Military Madness Records
Biographical / Historical
In 2021, St. Catherine University's Archives and Special Collection acquired the archives of Women Against Military Madness back to WAMM's beginnings in 1982. According to WAMM's mission statement, "Women Against Military Madness is a nonviolent, feminist organization that works in solidarity with others to create a system of social equality, self-determination and justice through education, action and the empowerment of women. WAMM's purpose is to dismantle systems of militarism, economic exploitation and global oppression."
Throughout its history, WAMM has worked passionately for peace and justice through letter-writing campaigns, forums, conferences, rallies, protest marches, and other nonviolent strategies. WAMM seeks to raise awareness of all aspects of militarism and its effects on military personnel, civilians, and the environment. A number of WAMM's members have been strongly influenced by Catholic social teaching, and by Catholic figures such as Daniel Berrigan and Dorothy Day, who were strong advocates for peace and justice.
