Abstract

Between 1916 and 1931 Jane Addams was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 91 times (Nobelprize.org). The nominators, including former US President Woodrow Wilson, listed her persistent and effective peace activism as the reason. Her peace activism achieved widespread international attention during World War I when she chaired the Women’s Peace Congress at The Hague and was elected president of a women’s peace organization.
