About the Book

'Twenty Years at Hull-House, with autobiographical notes, the most well-known Settlement House in America is the novel of a 1910 book by Hull-House founder and prominent Progressive Era reformer Jane Addams. Her most popular book was Addams' autobiographical narrative of her efforts to ameliorate living circumstances for working-class immigrants in Chicago's West Side slums. This book, which is a new instructional version of Twenty Years at Hull-House, is a great opportunity to introduce students to one of America's most well-known women and a pioneer of the Progressive movement. In 1883, Jane Addams witnessed a distressing scene in London; she wanted to replicate the experiment in the U.S. In 1889, Addams and her friend Ellen Starr moved into a rundown mansion in Chicago's West Side. In the urban industrial areas, Hull-House was envisioned as a "hub for a higher civic and social life." The energy of the first generation of female college graduates found a home in Hull-House. Addams embraced the sexual stereotypes of her day and soothed public fears by acting primarily in the roles of nurturer and caregiver. Although Addams' writing can at times be challenging to understand, her beliefs and actions are genuinely admirable.

About Author

Jane Addams

Jane Addams (September 6, 1860 - May 21, 1935) was a social worker, sociologist, public official, author, and advocate for settlement reform in America. She contributed significantly to the history of social work, women's suffrage, and the fight for world peace. One of the most well-known settlement homes in America, Hull House in Chicago, was co-founded by her. Yale University granted Addams an honorary master of arts degree in 1910, making her the institution's first female recipient of such a distinction. She is recognized for inventing the social work profession in the nation and was the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. She assisted America in addressing and concentrating on topics that mothers found important, such as children's needs, local public health, and global peace. The workings of government and the home are connected, as emphasized by Jane Addams in her essay "Utilization of Women in City Government," which claimed that various government departments, including sanitation and child care, can be linked to traditional women's functions in the home. The most well-known female public personality in the United States at the time of her death in 1935 was Jane Addams.
