Description

Women, Leadership and Election Politics: Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr

The event will be a celebration of the great work of Jane Addams. We are pleased to welcome historian Louise Knight, Professor Annie Storr and musician Kristin Lems.

In May 2016, the State of Illinois declared December 10th as Jane Addams Day to honor her contributions to Illinois and the world. During her lifetime, she had numerous, outstanding achievements; she was a founder for many important institutions such as the social settlement Hull-House, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). She was the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. AAUW is very proud that Jane Addams was a founding member of the Chicago AAUW branch in 1889.

Thank you to our partners - IWPA and AAUW-IL.
