Claim: Though an issue that has resolved on account of a mindset reform, Between 1826 to the early 21st Century, Women suffered from educational inequality because of the perceptions society had towards them. “The education of girls and young adult women in Colonial America appeared to have received inadequate attention. A sex bias favored males in quality and quantity of educational opportunity, women's education in Colonial America was richer than is popularly conceived,” says Huey P Long, PhD in Education & Educational Research, obtained from Stanford University.

Not only was Jane Addams a leader in the American Progressivism Movement, but she contributed in many other aspects of American history. Her most notable contribution is Hull House, one of the first settlements in America, she created in the West Side of Chicago in 1889. Jane Addams’ motivation for creating the Hull House was not only what I think she felt as her moral and religious obligation to provide some type of relief to those suffering around her, but everyone else’s lack of action and her need to find some type of meaning in her life. After her father’s death and her traveling through Europe for six years Jane began experiencing self-doubt and depression which caused her to notice a lack of meaning in the “comfortable life of a privileged woman” (Lane).

An example of a hero is Martha from The Secret Garden. Although she doesn’t necessarily save anyone from anything tragic, she seems as if she would be Mary’s Hero. She is encouraging, positive, and caring. When Mary first arrived at Misselthwaite Manor, she was a contrary little girl that hated the moor when she first saw it. However, Martha finally encouraged her to go play in the moor with stories about her brother, Dickon, and what adventures he had in the moor.
Ida Maud Cannon is a historical figure worth mentioning since she is considered the “medical social work pioneer” (Social Welfare History Project, 2012). This woman has made many contributions in medical social work. Ida was a nurse prior to leaping into the social work field (Social work trailblazer, 1997).

Ida was one of the few that worked with lower class clients who had “unspeakable diseases” (Kerson, T. S., & McCoyd, J. M., 2013).
A hero is a person who overcomes their fears to fight for what is right. A person who fights for change. Heroes are everywhere. Heroes can be anyone. Every hero is a unique person with feelings and families.
A hero is someone who puts others before themselves. Heroic acts can range from small gestures or actions to saving countless lives. Heros are known for their outstanding achievements and bravery. Rosa Parks was a hero because she stood up for what she thought was right, Rosa Parks was courageous, selfless, and determined. Rosa Parks had a fairly normal childhood.
When a person hears the word, “Hero,” somebody that has impacted the life of a person in any part of way or another comes to mind. Someone that has a special place in a person’s heart counts as a hero, not any ordinary person. An African American by the name of Rosa Parks has that special effect on a numberless amount of people. Rosa Parks stood up for separation on December 1, 1955, when she did not give up her seat on a city bus.

Jane Addams life as a child was not easy, she had a congenital spinal defect which led to her never being physically strong and her father who served for sixteen years as a state senator and fought as an officer in the Civil War always showed that his thoughts of women were that they were weak, and especially her with her condition. But besides that she lived a very privileged life since her father had many famous friends like the president Abraham Lincoln. Jane was determined to get a good education which she ended up getting. She went to Rockford sanitary for women which is now called Rockford University and she also studied to be a doctor but had to quit because she was hospitalised too many times. Being sick affected her life very much so when she got older she remedied her spinal defect with surgery.
