Jane Addams

Jane Addams | Herstory | Scoop.it


Jane Addams (1860-1935) was one of the leading White liberal reformers in the US. She founded Hull House in 1889 in the Near West Side of Chicago, then an immigrant slum. It was a settlement house that became the model throughout the US. She also helped to found the NAACP. She opposed the US entering the First World War. That got her kicked out of the Daughters of the American Revolution – but led her to winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931.

Our schools could do a better job of sharing the accomplishments of women in history.

Marian Anderson

Marian Anderson | Herstory | Scoop.it

Marian Anderson was an African-American contralto who sang opera as well as traditional American songs (including spirituals) and became one of the most celebrated singers of the twentieth century. German-American pianist Franz Rupp was her permanent accompanist throughout most of her career (between 1940 & 1965).


As an African-American performer, Anderson faced much racism, including the 1939 refusal of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) to allow Anderson to sing for an integrated audience in Constitution Hall — resulting in Eleanor and Franklin D. Roosevelt to arrange for the singer to have an open-air concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on Easter Sunday of 1939. Anderson broke other barriers, including becoming the first black person to perform at the Metropolitan Opera in 1955.


In addition to her work as a performer, Anderson worked for human rights, including as a delegate to the United Nations Human Rights Committee and participating in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. She did sing at the March on Washington in 1963.


Among the awards Anderson won: the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Kennedy Center Honors, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.


Her autobiography, My Lord, What A Morning, was published just after her appearance at the Met.

International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir

International Women's Day 2015: Celebrating the whirlwind wit of Simone de Beauvoir | Herstory | Scoop.it
It is probably fair to say that I approached Simone de Beauvoir the wrong way round: I visited her grave before I read a word she'd written. This was not particularly my intention. Many years ago I was in Paris, with a handsome man who liked Sartre (my youth was filled with such men, several of whom also played the guitar. I have nothing to offer in my defence). He liked Sartre so much that he wanted to visit the great man's grave.
