Description

Jane Addams, settlement founder, social reformer, suffragist and peace worker, was the first American woman to win a Nobel Prize, awarded in 1931. Addams participated in the founding of the NAACP as well as of the ACLU. She served as the first vice president of the National American Women's Suffrage Association, and in 1915 helped draft the platform for the Woman's Peace Party.
Addams was anti-war. During the period following World War I she was vilified and called unpatriotic for her anti-war stance. Despite the criticisms she worked in the postwar period to help feed children in this country as well as "enemy children.” For her efforts, she was expelled from the Daughters of the American Revolution but awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace.
