Lillian Wald: America’s Great Social and Healthcare Reformer
by Paul Kaplan
In this immensely significant biography, Paul Kaplan follows powerful activist Lillian Wald, a social and education reformer dedicated to helping less fortunate citizens in New York. While living there, Wald began campaigning for healthcare, which lead her to inserting herself into the social climate of her patients. Groundbreaking for her time, Lillian Wald was not only a revolutionary reformer but also an advocate for women’s suffrage, racial integration, and worker’s rights. She acted as a leader in a world that has now forgotten her countless contributions. This biography is brilliant for children looking for a strong female role model from the past, for today.
