The Vietnam War and Student Rebellion

(p.199) 5 The Vietnam War and Student Rebellion
Challenge and Change

June Melby Benowitz

University Press of Florida

This chapter explores right-wing women’s reactions to the Vietnam War and to the student rebellion on college campuses that erupted in response to the war and other issues. Student strikes, anti-war demonstrations, and the wearing of “peace symbols” were all proof to the right that there was a general decay of traditional and moral values. Rightist women believed that the war was just, but that the Lyndon Johnson Administration in particular was not conducting the war properly. The women held rallies to counter those of liberal youth, as well as to express their views about American policies regarding trading with communist nations.

Keywords:   Vietnam War, Student rebellion, Communist nations, Lyndon Johnson Administration, Liberal youth, Right-wing women
