Join Jane Addams Hull-House Museum and the University of Illinois at Chicago Honors College  for a vibrant and inspiring conversation about courageous women who powerfully opposed war and state violence and hear from current activists who continue to stand up against sexism, racism and civil and human rights violations. A roundtable discussion will highlight the Women's Peace movement during Jane Addams’s era and her anti-war efforts, the founding of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) and explore current actions and the contemporary women's movement.  Speakers include historians, activists and brave women.
