Dear Reader:

March is Women’s History Month. To celebrate, I’m posting a favorite image of one of my favorite American women, Ida Tarbell. Just this past week I learned that Tarbell was Jane Addams’ editor for Twenty Years at Hull-House, Addams’ autobiographical account of a groundbreaking approach to solving urban problems, the “social settlement.”    
You can read more here. And/or, you can join me here, when I will be discussing Addams’ work.  If you’d like to attend, please write to me at: rebecca@rebeccasive.com.
Happy Women’s History Month.
