Jane Addams, born 6 September 1860—died 21 May 1935, was an important early feminist theorist of international law, linking domestic and international activism, identifying labour rights, citizenship, arms control, and gender equality as components of peace. Addams was also the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1931. As a founding member of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), she is recognized as holding a crucial role in the development of transnational feminist movements and anti-militarism that continue to this day. Addams published extensively, of particular note to international law are: Newer Ideals of Peace (1907), The Revolt against War (1915), and Peace and Bread in the Time of War (1922).
