From the Marcg 19, 2015, Chicago Tribune "March of history: 8 local sites honor great women" by Kenny Reid.
For the next time you visit Chicago.
Chicago has elected one woman mayor, the late Jane Byrne (and has named the Jane Byrne Interchange after her. But this is just one place to honor great women in Chicago.
JANE ADDAMS HULL-HOUSE MUSEUM, JANE ADDAMS MEMORIAL PARK AND CHICAGO WOMEN'S PARK
The first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize lived in several different sites. Her home and office outside of Hull House today serves many different functions where you can learn about her life, work, and her peace efforts during World War I.
There is also the Jane Addams memorial Park near Navy Pier. The Louise Bourgeois sculpture honoring her (the first piece of public art to honor a woman in Chicago) was moved in 2011 to Chicago Women's Park in the Prairie Avenue Historic Park.
