Author, professor, and an activist for peace, 1920-1971
Elise Boulding is known for her work in documenting the role of women in peacemaking as well as the the role of transnational networks in building global understanding. She managed to combine motherhood and her own studies in sociology, receiving a Ph.D. in 1969. Her experience as a mother of five children convinced her that people can be taught to wage peace just as they can be taught to wage war. She wrote that we should train children to become diplomats instead of aggressors.
