Social and Political Reformers an
Elbert Hubbard supported his wife, Alice, in her effort to gain rights for women. He also became involved in other reform movements of the time. He invited some of the most prominent activists, including Susan B. Anthony, to speak on the campus which would become a haven in the fight for political, intellectual and social equality in early 20th century reform. Learn about these early reformers from the 20th century, what it means to be an activist or reformist and how this is still relevant in today's world.
