This chapter focuses on the fourth Pan-Pacific Women's Conference held in Vancouver, Canada, in the summer of 1937. Under the conference theme of “Practical Ways and Means to Promote Peace,” participants discussed a range of issues concerning the promotion of world cooperation and the end of war. While delegates traveled toward the conference, Sino-Japanese hostilities in Manchuria recommenced and were destined to escalate by December into the horrors of Nanking. To many of those present in 1937, a second world war seemed imminent, underlining even more strongly the need for a new way forward in global affairs. Following the war, the association gradually re-formed, to meet again in Honolulu in 1949, and a new generation of nonwhite women from decolonized and settler colonial nations represented their own organizations in the Pan-Pacific.
