The Welsh Women's Peace Appeal to America was inititated in May 1923, following a 'conference of women' held in Aberystwyth University on the afternoon of Wed 23 May. This was one of a series of sessions organised through the Welsh League of Nations Union (WLNU), as part of their Whitsun week annual gathering over Mon 21-Wed 23 May 1923. These report clippings from the WLNU's archives offer an insight into the proceedings, presided over by Mrs Peter Hughes Griffiths as chair of the WLNU, with addresses from Sydney Herbert and Rev Gwilym Davies. A resolution proposing the Women's Peace Appeal campaign was proposed by leading women from Aberdare, Port Dinorwic and Swansea, and an organising committee of 20 women appointed to carry out the campaign.

It is unclear which newspaper the press clippings originate from, although they were gathered for the purposes of the WLNU's reporting.
