Jane Addams Tea Towel

Jane Addams (1860-1935) was an American social worker and women's suffrage campaigner. Addams promoted issues such as the needs and children and mothers, local public health and world peace, at a time of increasing social awareness in the US during the Progressive Era. Addams argued that women should gain the vote in order to bring their domestic expertise into the public sphere and assist with areas of government from sanitation to schooling. Addams co-founded Hull House, a large settlement house in Chicago, and also was a founder of the American Civil Liberties Union in 1920. In 1931, Addams was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
