This non-fic­tion pic­ture book biog­ra­phy about the inspi­ra­tional life of Han­nah G. Solomon, Jew­ish social activist and founder of the Nation­al Coun­cil of Jew­ish Women, com­bines Han­nah’s own words and thoughts from her auto­bi­og­ra­phy with sec­ondary sources to bring to life an exem­plary Jew­ish woman. Born in Chica­go, just before the Civ­il War, Han­nah spent her life fight­ing for equal­i­ty for women and chil­dren, and decent liv­ing con­di­tions for immi­grants. Friend of social activists Susan B. Antho­ny and Jane Addams, Han­nah Solomon is cel­e­brat­ed as the founder of the NCJW, the first nation­al orga­ni­za­tion in his­to­ry to unite Jew­ish women for Jew­ish edu­ca­tion and social jus­tice work.
