Jane Addams involved herself in a long list of Progressive campaigns. Her rhetorical skills as both speaker and writer made her internationally recognized as a supporter of civil rights, woman suffrage, and labour reform. Addams was one of the vice presidents of the Chicago Liberty Meeting that led to the formation of the Central Anti-Imperialist League in Chicago. She later served as a vice president of the national Anti-Imperialist League (1904-1919). In 1889, Addams co-founded Hull House, one of America’s first settlement houses offering training, shelter and culture for Chicago’s poor. She was later a co-founder and first president of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (1919-1935). She is also remembered as the first American Woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. Addams is recognized as the founder of the social work profession in the USA.
