Rima Lunin Schultz; Women as Peacemakers: Maternal Thinking Re-defined

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Using a biographical and historical approach, Dr. Rima Lunin Schultz, Oak Park historian of social movements and women's history, argues that concrete social justice concerns rather than abstract idealism or popularly held sentimental notions of motherhood and woman's nature motivated three American peacemakers: Julia Ward Howe (1819-1910), Jane Addams (1860-1935), and Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962).
