Seven years before the ratification of the 19th Amendment, Jane Addams criticized the policies men had enacted with control of government.

Addams argued men had wasted money on military weaponry instead of education, prioritized profit over the health and safety of workers, and designed the criminal justice system to seek revenge instead of educating and reforming offenders.

After a century of women's suffrage, how have things changed?
