Useful Woman

The Early Life of Jane Addams
A non fiction book by

Frequently recognized as one of the most influential women of the century - and considered a heroine by social activists around the globe - Jane Addams struggled to earn her place in history. A Useful Woman is the definitive resource on the early years of the future founder of the Jane Addams Hull House and the 1931 Nobel Peace Prize winner. During the ongoing economic recovery, Addams' core issues of poverty, wealth equity, and social action continue to be discussed at length by our nation's leaders and the media. At the beginning of our national dialogue on this topic is Jane Addams, and this book reveals her life at the outset of her mission to provide for the poor and underserved. A Useful Woman is the ultimate study on the formative years of not only one of Chicago's most formative figures but also one of the most important women in American history.
