Mother’s Day in America didn’t begin as a commercial holiday, but rather a call for peace and women’s activism. In 1870, horrified by the human devastation of the Civil War, Julia Ward Howe, the author of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”, conceived of an International Mother’s Day in which women would come together and promote general interests of peace. Julia Howe believed that women needed to rally together for peace in order to keep their sons from having a war to fight in where they would be sent to kill other mothers’ sons. In Boston, she initiated a Mothers’ Peace Day observance on the second Sunday in June which was held for a number of years. She, along with Anna Jarvis, rigorously championed an official celebration of Mothers Day and the declaration of an official holiday. Her idea was widely accepted but was later replaced by the Mothers’ Day holiday now celebrated in May.
It makes sense that a women’s crusade for peace was crystallized through the eye of motherhood. A powerful and commonly recognizable model, ‘Mother’ speaks to the common theme of human experience regardless of our nationality, race or tribe.
