In the work force Kelley’s work had to deal with social reforms for the minorities of the work force like children and women because they had it so bad at the time. She had regulated the hours of the work day so that we today as kids wouldn’t have to work long days. I can use these important facts in my project because they are the actual effects she had caused and the reforms she initiated in America for most of the population to this day
"Florence Kelley and the Nation's Work." - Sklar, Kathryn Kish. N.p., n.d. Web. 08 Jan. 2015.
This is a biography that I found about Florence Kelley. I didn’t read the whole book itself, but I was just going to use it along with another book as a reference if some people wanted another way of getting to know my topic and her life. I did read an excerpt and the book is actually pretty descriptive of her life and the contributions to America in the way of work.
This book was written by someone else in order to get Florence’s story across. I can use this as a reference to get backup info from when I need to pull information from. I like the format of the book because its in chronological order and it overall helps me with basic facts.
This primary source was actually a report that Kelley wrote herself. I can use this in the website because some of the words actually show the reader how in depth she was. She actually digs deep into some of the undercover work she did in factories she went into. So this is a great source to use in the website as a link to her work.

So being a resident in one of those official houses meant that you both lived there and you worked there. So Kelley had started many corporations that supported the minorities of the mid 1800s to the 1900s and with these corporations gave the rights to the right people. She was married once and brought her 3 kids with her when she divorced him. Kelley was a committed pacifist because she didn’t support some of the war efforts and she supported women instead.
I got to this website because I was looking for some inspiring or just overall quotes from Florence Kelley and this is what I came across. It has some new things that I haven’t seen any of the other websites have from her. The other sites do have quotes but they are brief. I most likely will use these quotes as a display on the website wall that I will make.
"Florence Kelley: A Commitment to Social Work." Florence Kelley: A Commitment to Social Work. N.p., n.d. Web. 07 Dec. 2014.
This source is basically summarizing in 5 different topics what Florence Kelley went through in her life to actually get to where she had gotten. There is her early life, her achievements, her married life, her education and etc. Florence Kelley had a hard life because of what her family had gone through and she even had a sickness at a young age that gave complication to her learning. At a young age she had to prove to whatever family that she had left that she could do the work to make them proud which she did. Her private life she was married and her marriage or relationship seemed very planned out because she had three kids in a separation of three years.
This source is about Florence Kelley and her work how she went off to do some investigative work herself in order to get things done. It gives some hints to how her family back round made her the person she was. It doesn’t say anything about her actually being the only cause to the laws passed but she was a good contribution to the cause itself. This site also has some other aspects of her life.
I know that using Wikipedia it doesn’t always have the correct information but I was initially attracted to it because it had some new info in the website that I can use on my bio area of the website. The info included a whole new section about Florence’s school life and some of the trials and tribulations that she had to go through to get there.
Before looking further into Florence Kelley’s life I continued to see the Hull House pop up as a significant place in her life. Therefore I had to do some investigating of this place and this was one of the websites I looked into. Like the other Hull House website I learned of it’s origin and the founders, Jane Addams and Ellen Gates Starr. I also got to learn about the other residents of the house that had stayed there when Florence Kelley did.
I used this website in order to further my understanding of an activist and the role in the community. I looked and it helped me understand Florence Kelley’s career a lot more. It told me good information about the many different forms of activism and was very informative.

This source is another about Kelley’s personal life so it’s not that much detailed about her work just some of her work. It goes to explain that with the help of some of her friends they could accomplish some of the big fights about women’s right in the work place. This site gives good info about how she really helped women of the time that’s why I got so interested in her because I wanted to know some of the work it took to get the women the rights they have now and even the kids and Kelley played a big role in this movement.
"Living at Hull-House." Living at Hull-House. N.p., n.d. Web. 19 Dec. 2014.
I used this website to go in depth about a place that was referenced to multiple times in the other sources. The Hull house was a place that Florence Kelley and other important figures had both lived and worked in. since I had not known much about it I decided to look into it. Florence had lived here with her children after a great divorce with her husband. The Hull House had gladly taken her in and helped her further her experience.
This website [although not a primary source] helped clear up some facts that I wanted to know about Florence’s early life. Some of the websites I had visited had many different facts with the same content and this website helped clear up some of the different info. I will use this in my website maybe as a link or general facts.
"Women of Achievement Library (Author Index)." Women of Achievement Library (Author Index). N.p., n.d. Web. 18 Dec. 2014.
This source was great it had a speech that Florence Kelley had given to the people in Philadelphia on July 22, 1905. The speech was very persuasive and showed the dedication Florence Kelley had put into her work. I can use this in this way to show the people of today the way speeches back in the time what kind of affect the speech caused.
Florence Kelley went to law school so she could learn to fight her own cases in court. At the time many women did not go to school and she became a pioneer for women to break free of the social status. This helps me because it talks about why she did things and that also some of the things she was the first to do and that means that she was a leader.

I was not sure if this had been a speech that Florence had said herself but as I started to read it started making sense to the era she had been in so it turned out to be her speech. I want to use this speech as a reference to her work on the website because it has good quality points despite the fact that I wasn’t sure at first. I think that Florence Kelley was a good speaker she had great influence in her work and this quality is one that I want to show in my website.

This website explains more outside information about the influences Florence Kelley had in her work and family. It was pretty interesting to see what her dad did only because all the other sites just said that he was a high official not much detail about him. Well it seems like all the sites have given me something different about her work life and this just added more information about her accomplishments as an activist and how she got there.
