A book-length study about the Victory Board, a pro-democracy women's organization in Argentina during World War II.

My book project on the Victory Board (1941-1946) is a case study of how disenfranchised women spread democracy, united and energized diverse people, and engendered their project. This anti-fascist women's group defied the Axis-leaning Argentine government by making goods for Allied armies in World War II. Combining support for democracy and women's rights, the Board was the largest women's political association before suffrage. It adapted European ideas to the local setting and organized the grassroots throughout the nation against fascism at home and overseas. The Board's collaboration with similar groups across borders facilitated aid and galvanized members. Women were vital for mobilizing anti-fascism and anti-fascism was vital for mobilizing women, in Argentina and perhaps elsewhere, a gendered dimension that scholars have often disregarded. I would use this grant to write the first book on the Board, one which will transform our understanding of global and women's anti-fascisms.
