Happy World Social Work Day!

As a social worker, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge March 16th as World Social Work Day.  We as social workers in collaboration with the citizens of the planet have a lot of work to do to make this world a healthier, more peaceful envoronment in which to live. 

And in honor of World Social Work Day, I would like to honor (although there are many more), a pioneering social worker, feminist, educator, second female recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, founder of the U.S. Settlement House movement and prominant figure of the early 20th century Peace movement - Jane Addams. Her work and influence continues its legacy in the field of social work and among women today.
