Jane Addams and Teaching our Children

Gotta love her! Avid reader and facilitator of social change.  Fighter for women's suffrage and outspoken pacifist during WWI.  Defender of immigrant's rights, unyielding advocate for the disadvantaged.  Antagonist to political avarice; supporter of better housing, child-labor laws, and public welfare.  A college lecturer, social Christian movement member, Noble Peace Prize recipient. Author, philanthropist, and activist; may countless follow in her steps while making their own path.
