Between 1870 and 1930, Chicago was home to some of the nation’s most important women reformers, including Jane Addams, Frances Willard, and Ida B. Wells. Seminar participants will gain a deeper understanding of the lives and times of these influential Chicago women. This biographical approach uses their lives and writings to discuss issues including progressive reform, cross-class coalitions, legal equality, suffrage, racial uplift, and education.
Registration for all Newberry Teachers’ Consortium seminars opens September 4, 2014.
