Addams, J. (n.d.). Women and Public Housekeeping. Retrieved from

Excerpt: A city is in many respects a great business corporation, but in other re? spects it is enlarged housekeeping. If American cities have failed in the first, partly because officeholders have carried with them the predatory instinct learned in competitive business, and cannot help ?working a good thing? when they have an opportunity, may we not say that city housekeeping has failed partly because women, the traditional housekeepers, have not been consulted as to its multiform activities? The men of the city have been carelessly indifferenct to much of its civic housekeeping, as they have always been indifferent to the details of the household. They have totally dis? regarded a candidate?s capacity to keep the streets clean, preferring to con? sider him in relation to the national tariff or to the necessity for increasing the national navy, in a pure spirit of reversion to the traditional type of government, which had to do only with enemies and outsiders.
