How to use "Social reformer" in context?
If you are looking for someone who has devoted their lives to social reform, you need look no further than Jane Addams. Known as the "Joan of Arc of the Prairie", Addams was a crusader for change who made a lasting impact on American society.
Born in 1860, Addams was the daughter of a successful businessman. However, her early experiences left her with a discomfort with social hierarchies and a strong belief in social justice. After studying at the University of Chicago, Addams found her calling as a social reformer.
Her first major cause was the fight for female suffrage.
