Violette Neatley Anderson was one of the biggest advocates for landmark pieces of legislation that helped sharecroppers in the South secure rights and economic mobility. Anderson was active in many social and political movements. She worked with The League of Women Voters, served as President of Friendly Big Sisters League of Chicago, and served as an executive board member of the Chicago Council of Social Agencies.
