When Hannah G. Solomon looked around Chicago, the city where she was born, she saw unfairness all around her. Many people were poor and living in terrible conditions. Immigrants from other countries struggled to survive in their new home. Hannah decided to help change that. When she grew up, she founded the National Council of Jewish Women--the first organization to unite Jewish women around the country--and fought to make life better for others, especially women and children, in Chicago and beyond.
