ABOUT THIS BOOK
From Jane Addams, a pioneer in the field of social work, to Gwendolyn Brooks, the first African American to win the Pulitzer Prize, to Hazel Johnson, the mother of environmental justice—the contributions to culture, innovation, and social reform from generations of Chicago’s women have been deeply influential in modernizing not only our city but our entire society.
Second to None is our celebration of this tradition of female ingenuity and our acknowledgment of the women who see beyond what is and work for what can be. “There is no limit to what we as women can accomplish,” and through 27 interviews with Chicago’s most innovative and bold female founders, we are proving that women, and Chicago, are second to none.
