Vote! The Life and Work of Sadie Jacobs Crockin 1879-1965
As a woman, an American, and a Jew, Sadie Jacobs Crockin championed many causes. Throughout her life, she brought women together in organizations that empowered diverse Americans to participate fully in civic life. Crockin exemplified the college-educated, progressive "New Woman" of her day who joined women's club for self-improvement and to effect social change. Under her leadership, the Baltimore chapter of the League of Women Voters helped women exercise their newly won right to vote. She was the founding president of the Baltimore chapter of Hadassah, the first Zionist women's organization. Once she had firmly established these and other organizations locally, Crockin achieved statewide prominence as an advocate for social justice and women's rights.
