Review: At an early age Jane Addams came to realize that many others were not as fortunate as her wealthy family. Her visit to a settlement house in London prompted her to found the Hull House in the "gritty" part of Chicago. She devoted her life to helping those in poverty learn skills to better their lives, and to breaking down ethnic and economic barriers. Hull House became a template for modern community centers, and Jane became the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
