Louise Weiss (1893-1983) - Mother of Europe

Journalist, author, French suffragette, and politician, Louise had earned an advanced degree from Oxford University by the time she was 21. During World War I, she worked as a war nurse. Horrified by the devastation she’d seen, she became a proponent of lasting peace between France and Germany, and founded a weekly, L’Europe Nouvelle, in 1918.
