Women’s Boycott Meeting Today

Download PDF for this date

Over 2,000 Jewish women are expected to be present at the mass conference of the Women’s Division of the American League for the Defence of Jewish Rights, to be held this afternoon in the grand ballroom of the Hotel Astor. The purpose of the conference is to organize a nation-wide consumers’ boycott of German goods and services among the women of the country, to last as long as the Jews of Germany are deprived of their rights.

Edna Ferber, noted novelist, yesterday endorsed the anti-Nazi boycott in a message to the Women’s Division of the League. She expressed regret at her inability to attend, and extended her best wishes for the success of the conference.
