The Women Of Hull House
Harnessing Statistics For Progressive ReformStreaming Video - 2005
Horrified by the living conditions in Chicago's tenements, Jane Addams opened Hull House in 1889, a place where she, Julia Lathrop, and other fellow activists could provide outreach services to the poor and uneducated people of the neighborhood-and by applying statistical analysis to real-world problems, pave the way for far-reaching social reform. Filled with archival photos and footage, this powerful program brings together Daphne Spain, author of How Women Saved the City, and Robyn Muncy, author of Creating a Female Dominion in American Reform, to discuss topics including infant and maternal mortality, the landmark Hull House Maps and Papers, and women's progressive reform movements.
